Description

Off the Top: Freestyle Rap and Improv

An elective focused on the development of freestyle rapping skills, which through their focus on timing, rhythm, wit, and linguistic speed, directly translate into ways to improve your performance as an improviser in identifying patterns, thinking on your feet, and finding the sweet spot between listening and being in the not-thinking zone. Course will also include a brief primer on the history of hip hop.
Prerequisite: Improv Level 03 at ColdTowne Theater or a graduate of another improv training program.
This class meets four times over five weeks; November 9, 16, 23, December 7.

Adam Protextor has been rapping for 17 years. As a solo artist, he's released five LPs in Austin, the most recent of which featured CupcakKe and was listed in the Austin Chronicle's Top 20 Austin Albums of 2017. He's played Sound on Sound Fest and Fun Fun Fun Fest and opened up for Geto Boys, Kool Keith, Aesop Rock, and many more. He was a co-founder and director of the Best of Austin-winning Austin Mic Exchange, a weekly hip hop open mic that ran at Spider House Ballroom for five years, and he founded Austin's first hip hop-exclusive live music festival Weird City Fest in 2014. He was the subject of a multimedia study on millennials in hip hop run by Nelson George, hip hop scholar, UT professor, and author of "Hip Hop Matters". Through local supplementary arts education programs Attendance Records and Free Skool, he has taught hip hop history and writing seminars to both K-12 and adult students in Austin. He is a graduate of ColdTowne Conservatory and a member of the improv group Hunnicut.
