"An enthralling piece of performance magic!
The break/s successfully reclaims hip-hop from the clutches of mass culture by bringing it back down to earth…while simultaneously elevating [it] to the level of art."
--The Daily Californian
It's as complicated and powerful as the best hip-hop can be."
--San Francisco Chronicle
Joseph is the real deal, swinging with such confidence that you grasp for adjectives to capture his skills."
--Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune
With two turntables, video, and a spoken word virtuoso, the living history of the hip hop generation is dramatically realized through the break/s, the performed personal narrative of poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph. Drawing on interviews and documentary footage by filmmaker by Eli Jacobs-Fantuzzi, this collaboration between performer, score, and projected image puts hip hop culture into personal, historical, and political perspective while breaking down the boundaries of theater, dance, and film. Note: Parental discretion is advised. Mature content, including strong language. Recommended for 17 and up.
