MIXTAPE is a collaboration of seven local artists whose differences in upbringing, generation, and relationship to Hip Hop have evoked important questions and dialogue around “What is Hip Hop?”

Using musical transitions by Minneapolis producer and composer BIONIK, this dynamic performance juxtaposes a variety of dance styles that exist under the umbrella of Hip Hop – including Breaking, House, Rocking, Urban, Street, and more – and demonstrates Hip Hop’s importance within and across cultures and communities in today’s society.

Participating artists include J-Sun, Al Taw’am, Magnolia Yang Sao Yia, Herb Johnson III, Ozzy Dris, and Darrius Strong.
