Presented in partnership with the Hip-Hop Theater Festival. Swift Solos is an evening-length series of vignettes based on the choreographic legacy of seminal Breakin’ innovator Ken Swift. This collection of solo and ensemble offerings celebrates Ken Swift’s choreographic body of work from battle and cipher to the concert stage. Pivotal to the globalization of the American folk form known as breakdancing, Swift’s work as a master choreographer spans over 30 years, crossing borders of race, age, culture, genre and venue.
