Dr. Lorenzo “Rennie” Harris is known for going outside the box to choreograph hip-hop works fusing Shakespearean narrative with hip-hop vocabulary while mixing hip-hop music with rock, modern and classical sounds. The Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival commissions a new work for DBDT: Encore! by emerging choreographer My’kal J. Stromile. He graduated from The Juilliard School in 2018 with its prestigious Héctor Zaraspe Choreographic Award. Now an apprentice with Boston Ballet, Stromile is right at home with DBDT: Encore!, having danced with the company while attending Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts. Stromile’s choreography takes influence from ballet, stretching beyond the classical form and layered with many facets of expressionism.
