Prism Stage: Angry Black White Boy
Prolific actor, rapper and playwright Dan Wolf re-imagines Adam Manbachs provocative novel Angry Black White Boy in a hybrid of theatrical storytelling poetry, rapping, beatboxing, ballet and hip-hop dance. Blending this kinetic palate of forms, the story exposes a young Jewish mans internal/external struggle to efface his race and historical identity. Looking for meaning outside of Judaism, especially within the hip-hop world surrounding him, he refashions his guilt and shame to cloak himself in the knowledge and expertise of a culture he adopts as his own.
Wolfs collaborators include actor/musician Tommy Shepherd, choreographer/dancer/actor Keith Pinto and director Sean San Jos.
A Q&A with Adam Mansbach and the cast will follow the performance.
