In Guggenheim Fellow Raphael Xavier´s newest group dance work, Point of Interest (begun in a Schonberg Fellow Choreographic Residency at The Yard in 2015), he tackles the artistic, humorous and at times painful physical evolution of the veteran Break dancer. An aspirational dance memoirist, Xavier juxtaposes the map of his own experience and physical reality with the ideal of breaking youth represented in his crew of gifted dancers: Josh Culbreath, Ricky Romo, Jerry Valme, and Chris LaPlante. In so doing up, he opens up the complexity and challenges intrinsic to breaking, the form itself embedded in a the larger multidisciplinary and social context of hip hop culture.
