DESCRIPTION:
In the wake of the Tony-Award winning Broadway musical, ‘Hamilton,’ it’s almost impossible to hear the name ‘Alexander Hamilton,’ and not immediately think of the hip-hop music and rhythms used to tell the story of one of the country’s founding fathers. This workshop/residency will explore innovative ways to retell history. Why not combine your history lesson with hip-hop beat and movement or use a famous speech or interview to create a one-of-a kind learning experience that will be one for the history books!?
