Learn new basic beat and musical techniques and put them in the mix of your theatre, poetry and spoken word as we explore race and identity and how it plays out in hip hop theatre aesthetics. Work directly with Dan Wolf and Tommy Shepherd on the same themes and aesthetics they are using in creating their next project, based on the provocative book Angry Black White Boy by Adam Mansbach. The final class includes a performance for an invited audience.
Dan Wolf is an actor, playwright, MC, and rapper. He is a founding member of the live hip hop band Felonious, and a Resident Artist with both the Z Space Studio and the Hybrid Project. Dan is the Program Manager of The Hub at the JCCSF which promotes the revolution of Jewish identity through arts, culture and new ritual.
Tommy Shepherd is a father, an actor, playwright, b-boy, rapper, drummer, and beatboxer. Tommy is also co-founder of the live hip hop band, Felonious: onelovehiphop and a member of resident theatre company Campo Santo and with Erika Chong Shuch’s The ESP Project.
