Narrated by Rennie Harris and set against the landscape of a video montage of African American communities of that era, Rennie Harris Funkedfied navigates the audience through a snippet of the 70’s per Harris’ journey into Funk music and culture, which ultimately evolves into Hip-hop culture. The piece features dancers from Rennie Harris Puremovement American Street Dance Theater Company, internationally known lock-dance group The Hood Lockers, and New York funk band Invincible.
