Hip Hop Theatre Explosion This Week


So this weekend (thurs-sat March 12-14, 2009) I’ll be part of the Hip Hop Theatre Explosion hosted by Zell Miller III (presented by Uprise! Productionsand the VORTEX).

This is more info on the show:

Roaring back at you for a 5th time, Austin’s unique Hip-Hop variety show of music, dance, poetry, and politics. Come save Hip hop from the clutches of misogyny, material products, homophobia, and just plain wack lyrical content.

Zell Miller III is an interdisciplinary theater/performance poet. His one man show my Child, my child, my alien child, won Best Original Script by the Austin Critics Table Awards in 2007. Zell is also the creator and co-producer of the Hip-Hop Theater Explosion which features poets, MC’s, DJ’s, dancers, and musicians in a theatrical variety show. He also hosts “Speaking the Spoken: The Art of Verse” a monthly open mic series at The VORTEX. He has been a featured poet at South by Southwest Music Fest and has opened for legendary artists such as Nikki Giovianni and The Last Poets. As one of the premiere hip-hop theater artists in the country, Zell is proud to bring this art form to his home city, Austin.

The next volume of chorizo fm mixtape series will be up soon….This one is Four-Finger Ring Rap…After this one i might take a break from the indie hip hop flavor and get ya’ll some different…hmm. any suggestions?
