"Hype Man" by Idris Goodwin

Theatre Events
Live-Streamed Virtual Event
Friday, Mar 19, 2021 at 7:30 PM (MT)
Directed by Idris Goodwin

A rapper, beat-maker, and hype man start to find success making music together, but harmony is harder to find when the interracial hip-hop trio clashes over how to use their newfound platform in the wake of a police shooting. Hype Man is a rhythmically woven drama exploring race, representation, fame and friendship.

7:30pm reading; 9:00pm post-reading discussion via Zoom

Reading Series
Curated by Professor Saffron Henke

What have we learned from 2020? How do we as theatre artists respond to this moment?

These are multifaceted times we are facing, not just in terms of the political, social, and cultural upheavals that 2020 brought upon us, but also the challenges the pandemic has brought to live performance as well. In response, this Spring, the Colorado State University Theatre Department will begin a series of readings of new works addressing the hot topic themes of our times – issues that have pushed our culture to the brink...and that reveal whole new worlds of possibilities. A collaboration of professional theatre artists, faculty members, current students, and CSU alumni, On the Brink will explore works representing a variety of underrepresented voices and perspectives.

Professor Saffron Henke’s goals for the series are to expose students at CSU to work from artists they may not otherwise know, to share with students the work their professors do, to encourage a curiosity for and practive of reading new plays, and to bring together faculty, professional artists and students in creative collaboration.

Date, time, and program information are subject to change.
