Are you creative? YES! Are you working on a project? YES! Does the world need your genius? YES! Somewhere deep inside you've got the conception of an idea--a song, a movie, a poem, a story--something begging for life. Right? RIGHT! This is your chance.
You may be 15 or 75, musical or not, a heavy rapper or poet slammer--or not! Your current skill level doesn't matter. Your passion does.
We're creating space for a dazzling mix of creative thinkers to congregate and create. First we'll dive deep into Hamilton to tease out its secrets. We know it works, but why? WHAT makes it work? What does he do musically, verbally, thematically? How does he keep the story driving, moving, gripping? We'll ferret out the answers.
First we explore, then we create. We'll deep dive into Hamilton's songs. We'll rip them apart and put them back together--to learn why they work. We'll extract secrets. Then use them. THAT'S the point. Not to copy Hamilton, but to create!
