Flow is described as "a tale of seven storytellers" and will feature writer Performer Will Powers portraying many characters using rap, rhyme, and movement. Powers will be accompanied by a live DJ. Developed and directed by Hip-Hop Theater Fest founder Danny Hoch (Jails, Hospitals, Hip-Hop), Flow was the inaugural workshop of NYTW's newly created Jonathan Larson Lab which led to the current co-production.
The New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival launched in the summer of 2000 with artists from all over NYC and the country. The two-week festival boasted headliner Sarah Jones with her much-acclaimed Surface Transit and Liza Colon-Zayas (Our Lady of 121st Street) under the direction of Stephen Adly Guirgis in Sistah Supreme. Former participants Hip-Hop Theatre Junction joined Hoch's Caseroc Productions to present the event which has featured Will Powers in previous stagings.
