Battle! Hip Hop in Armor

  • The Metropolitan Museum of Art 1000 5th Avenue New York, NY, 10028 United States (map)

The world of hip-hop dance culture collides with the bygone age of chivalry when modern-day freestyle dancers meet knights in armor. Discover the unexpected parallels—and see what it's really like to make some moves in all that chainmail, leather, and metal—in this unrivaled series of thrilling dance battles, commissioned by MetLiveArts in collaboration with The Met's Arms and Armor department and the fierce artists of It's Showtime NYC! from the South Bronx's Dancing in the Streets urban dance organization.

June 7, 2019

Performances at 5pm, 6pm, 7pm.

Gallery 371, The Emma and Georgina Bloomberg Arms and Armor Court
