Hip-Hop Theater at the Vortex
The folks of Xenogia Spoken Word Collectice – Da’Shade Moonbeam, LaLove Robinson, Enrique Cabrera, Zell Miller III, and Ebony Stewart – are set to premiere their debut full-length hip-hop theater piece, SPEAK, this weekend at the Vortex. Mixing hip-hop culture with a jazz aesthetic, SPEAK is a fast-paced show full of movement and spoken word. They’ll take on a variety of subjects, including (but not limited to) homophobia, racism, sexism, and classism.
True to the jazz aesthetic that informs their work, Xenogia never presents the same show twice. The format and structure may stay the same, but there is always an element of improvisation and spontaneity at work.
Three nights only:
Thursday, 1/31 – Saturday 2/2 at 8:00 pm
At the Vortex, 2307 Manor Road
