About THE MIXTAPE Collective: MIXTAPE dances into the next chapter of Hip Hop dance theater with an exploration of futuristic ways to perceive the struggles of the present. We locate ourselves in cyberspace, where battles are fought, relationships are built, and artifacts of the past are uncovered. MIXTAPE 5G: The Sound of Movement investigates finding the strength to defy hierarchy, building solidarity through difference, and fracturing fossilized stereotypes.
