August 28, 2013 § 1 Comment
Ronnie West, creative director of BLACK IRISH, premiered his first contemporary dance series XOXO – Hug Kiss Hit Miss on August 11th, 2012 at the restored Burning Coal Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Ron tell us that his work is, “not necessarily a story line production, but hits on historical moments of a story book love. Loneliness. Love at first sight. First kiss. Young love. Loss. Emptiness. Regret. Hate. Wasted time. Acceptance. Self-empowerment. Memory. Appreciation.”
Our marketing intern, Olivia Mitchell, had the chance to sit down with Ron and talk about his NCDF touring work.
So Ron, what was your inspiration for your piece XOXO Hug Kiss Hit Miss?
What is your personal definition of contemporary hip-hop?
Experience Ron’s dynamic movement for yourself: he’ll be teaching a master class on September 13 at 4:30pm on the Meredith College Campus!
