Manhattan's Hip-Hop Theatre Festival starts September 23
The 8th annual Hip-Hop Theatre Festival runs from September 23 – October 8 at venues throughout Manhattan. The festival features fully produced productions, workshops, readings, and panel discussions on the subject of hip hop theatre.
Clyde Valentin, the festival’s executive director, said, “In the past, the Hip-Hop Theater Festival has focused on introducing the Hip-Hop culture to other cities. This year, we are extremely excited to bring the festival back home. It has been such an amazing opportunity to work alongside recognizable organizations such as NYU’s Skirball Center and the Public Theater to educate the city about the culture and art so ingrained in its history. With this collaboration, we believe this is going to be our best festival yet.”
Among the events scheduled is what is being described as a “remix” of Howard Zinn and Anthony Arnove’s Voices: A People’s History of the United States.
More information is available at the festival’s website.
