First Mondays Event Series: Break Beat Theater


Armstrong Theatre
inside Armstrong Hall, 14 E. Cache La Poudre St.



Excerpts of Idris Goodwin's play, "How We Got On," will be presented at the First Mondays event series. Hank, Julian, and Luann are the flip side to the A story of hip-hop’s rise in the late 1980s—kids who forge a cultural identity in the white suburbs by dueling with poetry in parking lots and dubbing beats on a boom box. In this coming-of-age tale remixed, a DJ loops us through the lives of three Midwestern teen rappers who discover the power of harmony over discord. Composed by CC's new Mellon Fellow, Idris Goodwin, and with appearances by Deonna Bouye and Terrell Donnell Sledge.
