Can't Don't Won't Stop Theater Festival


It's Spoken Word. It's Theater. It's Dance. It's Music. It's totally outside of the lines of what you think theater is, yet true to studied artistic form.

The Rialto Center for the Arts and the National Black Arts Festival present the Can't Don't Won't Stop Theater Festival.

This multimedia excursion dramatically realizes the living history of the hip-hop generation through the performed personal narrative of poet Marc Bamuthi Joseph. Universes presents Live From the Edge, an evening that showcases the ensemble’s special brand of fusion theater in a "best of" evening that tracks the evolution of their poetic language from childhood rhymes and community rituals, to poetry and theater, hip-hop and gospel.

Friday, October 2 at 8PM and Saturday, October 3, 2009 at 8PM.

This is a Rialto Series performance.
