A storyteller indeed, Souleymane “Solo” Badolo will premiere “Benon” Feb. 13-15 at Danspace Project.

Hip-hop dance fans and the dance community at large will be pleasantly pleased to see the return of Rennie Harris Puremovement (RHPM) after a 10-year hiatus at the Joyce Theater, running from Jan. 28-Feb. 2.
