NY Theatre Workshop Teams with Hip-Hop Theater Fest For Flow, June 11-July 20

News   NY Theatre Workshop Teams with Hip-Hop Theater Fest For Flow, June 11-July 20 New York Theatre Workshop and New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival will team up to co-produce Flow at Performance Space 122. The work will run June 11-July 20 with an official opening June 26.

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.

Flow will play at P. S. 122, 150 First Avenue. For more information, visit www.nytw.org or www.hiphoptheaterfest.com.
