Intro to Hip-Hop theater

December 14, 2009

The critics called it a fad; a musical genre that would never last.

Fast forward 30-years and the cadence and creativity of hip-hop music has had an influence on American art and pop culture.

Now,  a new form of performance art called hip-hop theater is making its way on to stages across the county.

During the spring semester the Theater Department at Temple University will offer an Intro to Hip-Hop theater course taught by professor Samuel Reyes. Designed to introduce students to the principles and techniques characteristic of hip-hop theater and dance, students will examine the impact hip-hop is having on the professional theater in the United States, study the genesis and history of the culture and become and execute hip-hop movement.
