Iron Lotus – Phantom of the Roboticah
I came to the Bay Area to learn more about the history of popping and meet elders of the community in Oakland, San Fransisco and Richmond to hear their stories. I went to the city San Francisco to learn from Lonnie Green (aka Poptart aka the Fillmore Kid) during the Strutters Room Master Camp (which I will soon get back at and share my experience).
I met Agatha Rupniewski because of the camp. She showed me around and linked me with parts of the community in the Bay Area, which was great. She taught me the routine of her dance company Iron Lotus, with which we performed in the Oakland Metro Opera House. Ivy Chen had time to shoot a video with us, which results in this clip.
Thank you for this documentation, part of my adventures in San Fransisco
