To illuminate the unique concept of What You Will, BRT presents the Bridges Informance Series. Part-performance, part-discussion, each evening will challenge and inspire audiences' ideas of theatre today.
Viewed as a pioneer in the emerging genre of hip hop theatre, New York-based award-winning actor, rapper, playwright, and educator Will Power will deliver excerpts of his energetic monologue Flow, portraying seven assorted community storytellers in their quest for survival in a world of modern, urban pitfalls. This winner of the theatre trophy at the 2004 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival blends powerful narratives, dynamic rhythm and rhyme, and live beats spun by an onstage DJ into an unforgettable evening. Power will also host a poetry slam open to the public on Saturday, December 6
