Just Bust! Hip Hop Theater Workshop
October 8, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm CDTFree
Just Bust! Hip Hop Theater Workshop led by Interdisciplinary Arts Residency Program Artists-in-Residence Jay Adana and Zeniba Now. This workshop centers around an upcoming performance of The Loophole at the 16th Annual Passing the Mic Festival (October 15).
A sci-fi adventure musical set in The American Civil War with Book & Bars by Zeniba Now and Music & Lyrics by Jay Adana, The Loophole is the story of the self-liberation of Polly Danfield, a black scientist and cartographer stuck at a crossroads. As The Civil War rages and the call of the mysterious Alligator Queen beckons, Polly must choose: safety in hiding or love and revolution? With a folk/rap score, verse and body percussion, this swampy epic recasts the American hero.
Free, all ages, and open to the public.
