MOLODI is a performance ensemble that takes body percussion to the extreme. Using only their bodies as instruments, Molodi blends collegiate stepping, tap, gumboots, beatbox, poetry and hip hop dance with guerrilla theatre and robust personalities that bring to life a high-energy, rhythmic experience.
Incorporating elements such as military marching drills, schoolyard games, song, dance and even acrobatics, Molodi uses STEPPING as its base to create imaginative, humorous and rhythmic works of art.
An intimate atmosphere is a key element of the Molodi experience. Interactive rhythms and crowd participation bridge the gap between the artists and the audience members who suddenly realize that instead of being passive spectators, they are now essential participants.
Frequent collaborations with a variety of artists keep Molodi’s work fresh and innovative. Actors, musicians, visual artists, slam poets, vocalists and CREATORS have all contributed to this MOLODIC world.
Our flagship program for schools and organizations. Gimmie Some Mo’ brings the full MOLODI crew into schools for an up close and personal experience with the artists. The program includes several high-energy performance pieces from MOLODI’s repertoire with insight into the cultural histories of the dances and inspirational stories from the artists. It’s an interactive stepping workshop that gets everybody up of their feet and moving beginning with a fun, rhythmic warm up and culminating in a competitive Step Show challenge between the students. The workshop finishes with a question & answer session and final encore performance.
