Galactic Ritual: A Hip-Hop Theatre Experience
Sunday, February 27, 2011 at 5:00 PM (EST)
Galactic Ritual: A Hip-Hop Theatre Experience is inspired by the tradition of ancient Afrikan theatre and the Black Arts Movement. Theatre, video, Afro-modern dance, visual art, beats, rhymes, dee-jaying and b-boying are used to take the audience members on a ritualistic and galactic journey with SA-ROC the MC and dee-jay/producer, SOL MESSIAH (Dead Prez, Nappy Roots, Jay Z, Talib Kweli). A product of Afrikan-centered parents, SA-ROC developed a rebel mentality from an early age while being exposed to Jimi Hendrix, Gil Scott Heron, Earth, Wind & Fire, Go-Go, Rock, Hip-Hop and much more. Her aural quest for different sounds and concepts in music is seamlessly fused with multiple artistic disciplines in this exciting new show and topped off with delicious vegan cuisine.
