Tell Tale Hearts
An Evening of Hip Hop Theatre Featuring Carlos Aguirre and The Bay Area Theatre Cypher
General Admission tickets: $30/$27 for subscribers
Featuring an eclectic mixture of actors, rappers, poets, and hip hop theatre artists of all descriptions, the Bay Area Theatre Cypher is a freestyle rap collective joined on stage at Aurora by Carlos Aguirre (AKA Infinite) for an evening of intelligent, politically-conscious, locally-sourced, community-minded rap, slam poetry, beatboxing, and hip-hop theatre. Each performance will feature Aguirre's beatbox adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart along with a unique blend of improvised freestyle rap and original compositions. Aurora Theatre Company is thrilled to present this performance that takes its stand at the crossroads of theatre, hip-hop, and community.
"Not every theater artist is ready to be given carte blanche with an audience's time for 85 minutes, but the Aurora made an excellent selection in Aguirre, Wolf and Wong, all proven performers and creators who know how to keep you on their side..."
