Posted On August 4, 2023
SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 16 — 7:00 PM (Doors at 6:30 PM)
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17 — 2:00 PM (Doors at 1:30 PM)
Using music, video, and found-object marionettes, The Hip Hopera of 5P1N0K10 spins the classic story of Pinocchio as an Afrofuturist parable about a robot that longs to be a real B-boy in a post-apocalyptic future.
5P1N0K0 encounters racism, oppression, and police brutality along his journey. This “artivism” performance for adult audiences offers a creative expression of the artist’s views on social justice and gives the audience a call to consciousness.
Prepared to be transported to another realm by Jeghetto and sons, Tarin and Divine. The original, pulsating score is by Hip Hop producer Hir-O.
All ages are welcome, but please note that this performance contains exaggerated mech anime-style puppet violence.
