Works & Process at SummerStage Artists in Residence: Ladies of Hip-Hop

Ladies of Hip-Hop Dance Collective (LDC) is an all-female intergenerational dance collective that creates dance works illuminating the strength, power and diversity of women in hip-hop. Ever present in the work are the freestyle, cipher, and call-and-response aspects of the origins of street and club dance culture, while exploring the space of proscenium performance. Led by artistic director Michele Byrd-McPhee, LDC creates work that celebrates and centers feminist narratives examining the intersections of gender, race, and resistance.

This season at SummerStage, Ladies of Hip-Hop will perform at various shows throughout the season. See below for a full list of inclusions.
