@NasherMuseum no. 182 / Hip Hopera
Hip Hop Hooray
Hip Hopera
Wednesday, December 30, 10:30 AM
5P1N0K10 (Spinokio) is a Hip Hopera (Hip Hop Opera) about a robot-boy who wants to become human. In the distant future, when robots are used for war, engineer Jeghetto built 5P1N0K10 – an android who fights for humanity through b-boying and hip hop. This Afro-Futuristic take on Carlo Collodi’s Classic ‘Pinocchio’ includes hand-crafted puppets by Tarish “Jeghetto” Pipkins, projections and a live score written by Durham hip hop/jazz quartet The Beast. This world premiere will be for the whole family!
