    Kampnagel - Kx

In FIVE HAMBURG interdisciplinary artist Rashaad Newsome will investigate African, European, and North-American roots in the NYC underground dance tradition vogueing. Accompanied by a makeshift orchestra comprised of NY based Mc. Princess Mami Precious, Baritone Opera Singer Justin Austin, and five local musicians, five dancers represent – and perform – each of the five individual elements of vogue femme. Using video game controllers and custom motion tracking software, Newsome maps and visualizes the movement patterns of dancers in real time. During the performance drawing, music, dance, and technology collide into a beautifully structured crescendo of sound and movement.

»Because the (vogue) dance was co-opted so early in its creation, and not told from the perspective of the community where it comes from, there‘s not the luxury to have it exist only in the ballroom. It should be brought to the masses, but by us.« Rashaad Newsome at Momus
