“Point of Interest” is Raphael Xavier’s new piece that challenges the art form of Breaking and the viewer’s perspective of hip hop. At the Sheldon Theatre, in a small midwestern rural community 50 miles outsdie of Minneapolis/St Paul, our residents have limited exposure to this form. As part of our Enlighten Series (a 6 show series which builds on our mission to entertain, educate, and enlighten), this event will invite audiences to explore, discover, and wonder. The project will involve a 2 outreach activities - one with our high school and alternative high school students, and one for public at the YMCA - one public performance, and a post-show discussion.
