About this show

A collaboration between playwright Aaron Jafferis, director Christopher V. Edwards, breaking pioneers Kwikstep and Rokafella, beatboxers Adam Matta and Yako 440 and composer Rebecca Hart, How to Break tracks a socially awkward pediatric hematologist, a music therapist/yoga teacher and a nurse with a beatboxing problem, doing their best not to screw up two hospitalized teenagers, Joel and Keisha. Meanwhile, Joel - an impulsive but intuitive b-boy living with sickle cell anemia - and Keisha, a fiercely independent b-girl recently diagnosed with leukemia - chart their own course, along the way finding surprising connection and a radically new definition for what it means to be "ill."
