FLEXN

When: Wed., Sept. 14, 7 p.m. and Thu., Sept. 15, 7 p.m. 2016

They say art is a reflection of reality, and there may be no better example than the highly charged dance spectacle FLEXN. Under the leadership of Reggie Gray, a pioneer of the flex dance form, and theater director Peter Sellars, 16 dancers use eye-catching choreography to tell dramatic stories of personal strife and social injustice. Hailing primarily from Brooklyn — the birthplace of this street dance style — performers snap, glide, contort and “bone break” through kinetic commentary on newsworthy topics including the Black Lives Matter movement. Head to Dartmouth College’s Hopkins Center for the Arts for the production that the New York Times describes as “part protest, part dance party, part collective autobiography.”

Price: $17-50.
