Aurora Theatre Company presents seven evenings of hip hop theatre and spoken word in
TELL TALE HEARTS:
An Evening of Hip Hop Theatre Featuring Carlos Aguirre
and The Bay Area Theatre Cypher.
Featuring an eclectic mixture of actors, rappers, poets, and hip hop theatre artists of all descriptions, the Bay Area Theatre Cypher* is a freestyle rap collective joined on stage at Aurora by CARLOS AGUIRRE (AKA Infinite) for an evening of intelligent, politically-conscious, locally-sourced, community-minded rap, slam poetry, beatboxing, and hip-hop theatre. Each performance will feature Aguirre's rap and beatbox adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart along with a unique blend of improvised freestyle rap and original compositions. Aurora Theatre Company is thrilled to present this performance that takes its stand at the crossroads of theatre, hip-hop, and community.
Seating for this limited engagement is cabaret-style in Aurora's smaller venue, Harry's Upstage in the Nell & Jules Dashow Wing. Seats are on a first-come, first-served basis when you arrive at the theatre. Doors open one-half hour before the performance.
*A cypher is an informal gathering of rappers, beatboxers, and/or break-dancers in a circle, in order to jam musically together.
