14-02-2018 12:00:00 24-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York The Brobot Johnson Experience | 8:00PM The Bushwick Starr is thrilled to collaborate with All For One Theater in presenting The Brobot Johnson Experience, an Afrofuturism transmedia piece written by and starring award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet, Darian Dauchan, who has appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and abroad. The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson. One hundred years from now a race of Hip Hop androids known as Brobots will form a unit, The Tribe Called Space Quest, to spread their message of peace, love, and dopeness all over the universe. Through live looped vocals, rhymes, and beat-boxing, they perform the origin story of the first of their kind. They call it The Brobot Johnson Experience, a Sci-Fi Hip Hop solo concert that defies both space...and time. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=281019 The Bushwick Starr The Bushwick Starr
