"Artful and mesmerizing, Xavier transforms a bravado dance style into an introspective meditation."
Dance Magazine

Philadelphia-based Raphael Xavier is a self-taught hip hop dancer and breaking artist originally from Wilmington, Delaware. A photographer, musician, and former company member with Rennie Harris Puremovement, he is an innovative movement conceptualist who has helped expand the boundaries of dance since 1983. Crackling with high-energy physicality, Point of Interest (2016) features a series of solos, duets, and quintets set to his soundscape of beats, spoken word poetry, and musical rhythms.
