Beatboxer Chesney Snow, recently seen on Broadway in the a capella musical In Transit, will bring his show The Unwritten Law to Dixon Place for a limited engagement in September. The show details Snow's journey from a legacy of incarceration to fatherhood, homelessness, and ultimately starring on Broadway.
The Unwritten Law combines prose, contemporary dance, visual design, and live music. Performances will run September 5–29 at Dixon Place.
The show is directed and choreographed by co-creator Rebecca Arends, who also performs in the show with Maleek Washington. Original music is by AJ Khaw, and Varuni Tiruchelvam and Laura Dadap; lighting design is by Ro-Z, with projection design by Jo Sobieski.
Snow is an actor, poet, songwriter, composer and prominent figure in American beatbox culture. He created and co-founded the World Beatbox Association and the American Beatbox Championships, and starred in and executive produced the film American Beatboxer. Additional theatre credits include Regina Taylor’s Crowns, How To Break, Antigone, and Burn This, among others.
The Unwritten Law received a workshop production at Dixon Place in 2017. For more information on The Unwritten Law visit DixonPlace.org.
