Trinity College International Hip Hop Festival (2012): DECA dance performance
At the 2012 Trinity International Hip Hop Festival, DecaDanceTheatre’s Megz & Taeko perform an excerpt from an abstract hip hop piece entitled “When the Sky Breaks”.
Decadancetheatre has been redefining the image of women in hip-hop since 2004. Based in Brooklyn, Decadancetheatre has become a key ambassador of authentic, New York City hip-hop culture around the world through performances, workshops and creative commissions. Led by artistic director Jennifer Weber, the company represents a global vision of hip-hop with an international roster of dancers from the US, France, Germany, Norway, Nigeria and Japan. Challenging hip-hop’s male-dominated convention, Decadancetheatre takes female dancers out of the background of music videos and into the forefront of theatrical performance.
