About

A world premiere Kennedy Center co-commission
with Full Circle Productions from New York, NY
Outside the Bachx

With Guest Concert Pianist Cristina Altamura and Guest Beat Boxer Gene Shinozaki
 
Wonder what Beethoven and beatboxing would sound like together? How about a rap-off with Rachmaninoff? Or Debussy on a drum machine? Well, get ready for classical music and hip-hop to collide in full force with the world premiere of Outside the Bachx! Following their white-hot moves in last season's family production of Fresh Noise: A Mashup of Youth Voices--Game On!, Rokafella, Kwikstep, and the rest of the crew are back with a funky twist on everyone's favorite "old-school" composers. Hailed by the New York Times for their "choreographically sophisticated [and] daringly acrobatic" performances that bring "the gritty vibrancy of New York streets" to audiences of all ages, Full Circle Productions jams together hip-hop dancers, a DJ, a concert pianist, spoken word, classical remixes, and more for a show guaranteed to blow Mozart's powdered wig straight off his head! 

For age 8 and up.
 
Performance Timing: 60 minutes, with no intermission.
