HackPolitikHackPolitik had a fantastic run of performances at HERE Space Manhattan in July, 2014. It was dubbed a New York Times critic's pick (not bad, eh? They even called the piece "refreshingly relevant"). A huge congrats to choreographer Kate Ladenheim and The People Movers dance company for putting together a fantastic show.
The HackPolitik CD has been released by Innova Records, and is now available through most major online music distributors. Visit the HackPolitik Page for more info, video, press, and all things HackPolitik-related.
