HANDS UP, HOODIES DOWN
by Vortex Repertory Theatre
Mar. 12 - Mar. 14, 2015
A protest song sung in the key of high octane spoken word stanzas exploding through tears and heartache; it's the balled fist full of possibilities; it’s the feeling of the day after the riot and no place to buy groceries; it’s the mother's moan and the father's wail. Hands Up Hoodies Down asks: How do we react when human beings are taken out of existence?
Conceived and directed by Zell Miller III, Hands Up Hoodies Down is a new hip hop theatre and dance piece for our times. Conceived, directed, and co-written by Zell Miller III, with contributions from Chelsea Manasseri. Choreography by Sadé Jones. The cast features T-Fly, Kann, Da’Shade Moonbeam, Zell Miller III, Chelsea Manasseri, Sadé Jones, and introduces Ashé Arts Collective.
Hands up Hoodies down is funded and supported in part by VORTEX Repertory Company, by a grant from the Texas Commission on the Arts, and by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.
