Philadelphia based olive Dance Theatre will present an evening of works from their repertoire. True to the dance theatre genre, olive Dance Theatre's original works use the vernacular of breakin' in a narrative structure to tell us a story, explore an emotion or journey to places both familiar and foreign. Experience the work of this groundbreaking hip hop dance company through both ensemble pieces and spectacular solos.
