Marc Bamuthi Joseph will present his show, the break/s, March 26-28, at the Museum of Contemporary Art.

Inspired by award-winning author Jeff Chang, who wrote Can't Stop Won't Stop, Joseph explores the living history of the hip-hop generation through his own personal coming-of-age story using verse, dance, and film in this multimedia performance that focuses on the current state of hip-hop as part of a global culture. The production features an onstage beatboxer and improvised sound score and visual projections mixed by an on-stage DJ. Joseph is also set to bring the break/s to Seattle's A Contemporary Theatre, June 17-July 12.

A National Poetry Slam champion, Joseph has been a featured artist multiple times on Russell Simmons' Def Poetry on HBO, and his other works include Word Becomes Flesh and Scourge.
