Hip Hop Theatre Practices

Instructor: Kashi Johnson, MFA

Saturday, Sept. 7th – 11:30am-1:15pm

Ages 16+

Hip Hop has enjoyed a sustained and profound influence on culture for over forty years. While so many of today’s actors bring a Hip Hop sensibility to the acting studios, many instructors are ill-equipped to teach Hip Hop beyond its perceived entertainment purposes. Recognizing this gap, Professor Kashi Johnson, a pioneer of Hip Hop Theatre pedagogy, has spent the last decade investigating how Hip Hop can build bridges of understanding and create a safe space for actor training. This workshop will explore several Hip Hop Theatre inspired exercises, activities and performance practices with a focus on the creation of original work. Whether it’s reclaiming one’s identity through spoken word poetry, discovering movement through dance, or asserting one’s identity by writing and spittin’ an original rhyme, this workshop helps you to apply Hip Hop Theatre practices to your artistry.
