Taking the audience from the 1970s all the way into the future, this fast-forwarding/rewinding live Hip Hop show is written entirely in rhyme and cleverly crafted song lyrics.
Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera is a non-stop, high energy, one-man show using original music and physical theatre to tell the parodied story of two brothers living the hip hop life. Sébastien Heins utilizes hip hop and R & B, rap, soul, funk, and gospel to take the audience on an epic story of family and brotherly love. This special afteRock production will give audiences the immersive experience of being at a live hip hop show. As a student at the National Theatre School of Canada, acting student Heins conceived of his first 15-minute iteration of Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera, then called CashMoney & MoneyPussy, chronicling one tragic night in the lives of two hip hop superstars. Upon graduation, he was invited to the international United Solo festival with his 60-minute production in New York City, where he won the Best Emerging Artist Award.
Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera has been featured in SouloFest, ClownFest, Piece of Mine Festival, and b current’s rock.paper.sistahz festival. With its full premiere production (65 minutes) in b current's afteRock Plays (www.bcurrent.ca).
