Works & Process presents The Missing Element—a fusion of beatbox and street dance originally commissioned to adapt the cipher to the circular architecture of the Guggenheim—dancers embody the elements of wind, fire, water, and earth in an effort to inspire the spirit and recovery of New York, set to the percussive stylings of NYC beatbox crew The Beatbox House. They’re joined by LayeRhythm, a non-profit arts group led by Mai Lê Hô that celebrates the vibrancy of street and club dance culture through a mix of freestyle dance, live music, and audience interaction. This show is a part of our season-long partnership with independent performing arts organization Works & Process.
Learn more about Works & Process at SummerStage. This show will feature a special performance in collaboration with Works & Process. As part of this partnership, this season at SummerStage Ladies of Hip-Hop will perform at various shows.
