sHip sHop Shape Shifting

This brilliant duet for Victor Quijada and Anne Plamondon was commissioned by the New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival. sHip sHop Shape Shifting is a love poem to hip hop, communicated through Victor’s signature movement-hybrid vocabulary. It was performed at several prestigious galas, and toured extensively as part of the Elastic Perspective Redux repertory program.

The work premiered in 2005 at the Yerba Buena Performing Arts Center as part of the Bay Area Hip-Hop Theater Festival.
