New York-bred hip-hop pioneers Rokafella and Kwikstep are celebrated for their high-impact dance style, signature bravura, and mentoring skills as educators and community leaders. In the early 90's, Rokafella and Kwikstep started investigating hip-hop as a proscenium performance art form. On Friday, August 27 - Sunday, August 29; 8:00 PM at Intermedia Arts, they are bringing their acclaimed hip-hop theater piece, Innaviews, from New York to Minneapolis as part of Intermedia Arts' annual B-Girl Be Festival.
Created by Intermedia Arts in 2005, B-Girl Be: A Celebration of Women in Hip-Hop was the first international female-focused hip-hop summit in history. Since its inception, this wildly successful multidisciplinary summit has brought over 200 international, national and local girls and women in hip-hop together in Minneapolis for dialogues, art-making, screenings, performances, workshops and networking opportunities.
