@ First Stage Theatre

SHOW CLOSED AUDIENCE SURVEY

A Musical Fusion of Hip Hop and Social Justice

Ignited by an electric collision of theatre, breakdancing, and lyrical flow, this ground-breaking new musical follows two teenage hip hop dancers as they battle not only their disease, but also the hospital caregivers, for control over their own bodies. With a score backed by a beatboxed soundscape of the patients’ breaths and IV beeps, tensions rise as race, class, and language create life-threatening rifts between the patients and their treatment team. As the doctor and therapist wrestle over the health benefits of art versus painkillers, the teens attempt to break through their diagnoses in search of a gut understanding of what it means to be ill – both metaphorically and literally.
