Afaliah Tribune/SoulRebel Dance brings you Bigger Than Hip Hop, a dance movement piece that confronts America's past and present. Inspired by Dr. Joy DeGruy's book and lecture series Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome, Spike Lee's, Do The Right Thing, and Kanye West's Yeezus album, dynamic vocalist Anita Purcell joins these powerful performers as they explore and challenge one of the greatest wound in American History.
About the Company: Kumble Theater
Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts at Long Island University's Brooklyn Campus is a dynamic, state-of-the art performance venue serving one of the most diverse campuses and communities in the country. It is designed to nourish artistic exploration and development by students and other emerging artists while providing the entire community greater access to an exciting range of Broadway-quality, classical and cutting-edge professional performances.
Impeccably crafted for the dramatic and technical demands of dance, music and theatrical productions, this elegant, 320-seat theater provides finely tuned acoustics and top-tier lighting, projection and other electronic capabilities. With a stage featuring a sprung floor extending to the seating area, the theater fosters an intimacy between performers and their audiences.
This extraordinary theater was made possible through the generosity of Long Island University Trustee Steven J. Kumble. It is part of an ambitious Campus renovation that created an extensive performing arts complex also featuring a black box theater, dance studios and a glass-enclosed art gallery. Among other major supporters of the performing arts complex are the EAB/Citigroup Foundation, through Long Island University Board of Trustees Chair Edward Travaglianti, trustees Bruce C. Ratner and Donald H. Elliott, the City of New York and the Independence Community Foundation.
Kumble Theater for the Performing Arts reflects Long Island University's dedication to awaken, enlighten and expand the minds of its students. Expressed in its motto Urbi et Orbi, the mission of Long Island University since 1926 has been to open the doors of the city and the world to women and men of all ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds who wish to achieve the satisfaction of the educated life and to serve the public good.
