Premier: The House That Jack Built
Urban Artistry presents their premier performance of the new work: The House That Jack Built in the summer 2010. This year the Artistic Directors wanted to bring focus to the dances associated with House Music Culture, because it was im house music night clubs that many of the Urban Artistry Faculty initially met.
This performance traces house music and house dance back to the roots in African and Latin dances, as well as Martial Arts through live story-telling, dance, DJ, Drumming and vocal performances by Urban Artistry performers and directors. The show premiered locally from July 20-23, 2010 at The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC and Nationally at The American Folk Festival in Bangor, Maine August 27-29, 2010.
