03 Sep Hip Hop, featuring Insanity Isn’t
FUNDarte and Miami Light Project are proud to present Miami On Stage- a Night of Hip Hop Theater featuring Rudi Goblen, Meshaun Lebrone Arnold and Summer Hill Seven on Saturday May1, 2010 at 8PM at the Byron Carlyle Theater on Miami Beach.
This evening will feature excerpts of work by three of the most provocative solo Hip Hop theater artists in Miami. Previously commissioned by Miami Light Project as part of Here & Now 2008, Rudi Goblen’s Insanity Isn’t is a dance and spoken word whirlwind of 9 to 5 mania. Marking the first performance in Florida, Audelco award winner Summer Hill Seven’s Shakespeare N. Haarlem is about a poet sentenced to death for the new crime of lyrical terrorism. Fresh off a successful London tour, Meshaun Lebrone Arnold’s award winning Right To Remain is a glimpse into late rapper Tupac Shakur’s internal struggle with race, power, fame and infamy.
Miami On Stage was created by FUNDarte to offer a showcase of some of Miami’s best and brightest talents in theater, dance and music. This performance is also part of Miami Light Project’s Miami/Project Hip Hop Initiative, which is a forum to educate and celebrate the Hip Hop movement by exploring the social and cultural influences that have contributed to its development worldwide.
The Miami On Stage series continues on the first Saturday of each month in North Beach, presenting the best of South Florida performing artists. On June 5th there will be two performances Hilo,(Thread), by Jose Dominguez, directed by Lucia Aratanha, and Sipping Fury from a Teacup, created by Elizabeth Doud & Jennylin Duany and performed by Elizabeth Doud and Carlos Caballero.
