Hip-Hop Poetry On The Shakespeare Stage
Just because your middle name is "Shakespeare" doesn't mean all your work has to be hundreds of years old.
The Oregon Shakespeare Festival commits art in a number of avenues, including hip-hop.
The Hip Hop Poetry Open Mic Nights started several years ago at OSF. The next, coming tonight (April 4), features Dahlak Brathwaite, who has gained a national reputation for his work (it's free!). He visits the studio to discuss his art and its motivations.
