Social Movement Contemporary Dance returns to the MATCH for their first live performance in over a year with Power to the People.

Through three world premieres, Power to the People embodies the freedom from external control or influence. "The Culture" takes ownership of the now-global Hip Hop phenomenon through expression of Hip Hop's five pillars - breakdancing, MCing, DJing, graffitti, and knowledge. In "Autonomy," artistic director Elijah Alhadji Gibson celebrates the strength, power, and perseverance of all women, through a series of solos. To close the show, "We The People" conveys his observations of what happens when people’s daily lives are interrupted by the world's harsh realities and they begin to demand change.
