MAWU Presents Journey Into House

Hostos Center for the Arts & Culture
450 Grand Concourse, Bronx, New York 10451
$10 | Free for students and under 18
As part of the CUNY Dance Initiative, MAWU will present Journey Into House, a new work that explores the evolution of the underground house scene. Over the course of 45 minutes, we take the viewer on a journey through time, capturing along the way important cultural elements of freestyle, play, ritual, lineage, and community. Journey Into House is dedicated to friend, mentor, and legendary house dancer--the late Marjory Smarth, who was a warrior in life, a pioneer in dance, and who touched many lives around the world while spreading her message: "Live True, Dance Free". Marjory passed away on February 12, 2015 after a long battle with cancer. On what would have been her 47th birthday, we celebrate her life and her legacy.
The performance will be followed by a brief Q&A and reception. Complimentary food and beverages will be served. After party featuring the sounds of DJ Sabine Blaizin!
Founded in 2007, MAWU is an all-female crew and dance company born out of New York's underground house scene, whose mission is to embody strong, positive images of women in the urban dance community, and to create fierce and creative works that will both educate and inspire new audiences.
