This evening-length project celebrates a dynamic artistic collaboration through the blending of street dance and percussion ensemble. Choreography by Movement Art Is (co-founded by Lil Buck and Jon Boogz) will feature alongside new music composed for Grammy Award-winners Third Coast Percussion by Jlin and Tyondai Braxton, as well as Third Coast Percussion’s critically acclaimed arrangements of Philip Glass’s Aguas da Amazonia.
Each year, Third Coast Percussion presents 4-5 concerts of percussion music in their hometown of Chicago. In concert halls, theaters, and art galleries, the ensemble joins with world-renowned performers for programs that include premieres of new works for percussion alongside modern classic percussion music.
