Nicholas Leichter Dance and Monstah Black bring the energy, sweat, swagger, history and future of funk music, culture, fashion, and dance to The Seaport’s historic cobblestone district. A Space Funk Invasion will be performed for bystanders and patrons of four outdoor bars that form the perimeter of the area, promising a free side of funk for the burgers and beer. Performed to music by Daft Punk, The Time, and Monstah Black.
Artistic Director Nicholas Leichter choreographs cultural narratives in which movement tells a story. Leichter’s approach draws from many sources, including traditional, contemporary, folk, and popular dance music forms, which he and his diverse company members fuse with style and substance into a dialogue across cultures.
