[Rehearsals] Open Art Surgery #1

K folks,

So roughly 2 months ago I noticed a tweet from Jonzi D regarding a project called Open Art Surgery, sounding a little too good to be true, I decided to send an email.

I soon received a reply inviting me to the open session on Aug 28th!

Here we are!

Dudes dudettes and all sexy people! I loved every part of the open session. The thing with this was that I had no idea what to do? Being told to just show up leaves me very unprepared and I hate that feeling.

I was warned beforehand to wear something quite loose because it would get hot in there and so I ran to to the nearest H&M and purchase a polo (a nice polo if I may say so myself).

We worked individually, we worked as groups and most importantly, we started to create ideas!

Ok, I've been totally type yabbing and not explaining. Open Art Sugery provides a platform where hip hop theatre comes to life! Linking dance, spokenword, rap, singing all in one. Now there are a lot of us, 3 poets, 5 choreographers and roughly 16+ dancers!

We have two weeks to nail our performance! 18:00 - 22:00 rehearsals first week and 10:00 - 22:00 rehearsals all next week!

Performance day is on Sept 7th!!!!!!! And i want you there!!

This is the first entry in the build up! Look out for more!
