Enjoy a night of live dance under the stars at Capital One City Parks Foundation SummerStage's free show featuring beautiful performances by Art Move Concept and the Passion Fruit Dance Company on Wednesday, July 13.

From 8 to 10pm, Art Move Concept from French couple Soria Rem and Mehdi Ouachek will push the boundaries of hip-hop, while blending the circus arts with mime and contemporary dance. You'll see their latest work, "Anopas," which is an intimate tribute to the duo’s journey as artists. Tatiana Desardouin, Lauriane Ogay and Mai Lê Hô’s multi-national Passion Fruit Dance Company will bring social issues to light through their street dance and clubbing styles, hip-hop, house cultures and their black heritage. They'll perform, “Dance Within Your Dance,” a piece developed during Dance Your Future residency and premiered at BAAD!Theater in 2017.

Get there early at 6pm for a dance workshop from Art Move Concept. Just RSVP to rsvp@cityparksfoundation.org ahead of time to partake. There will also be a screening of So Ava, which is about Smaïl Kanouté who returns to his African roots by retracing the path of the slaves who, through their forced exile, spread their beliefs and voodoo rituals across the world. His majesty Zola Toyigbé of the lakeside So Ava kingdom offers Kanouté the keys to discover his world.

Migrant Kitchen will provide food for this event!
