Brotherhood

BROTHERHOOD: THE HIP HOPERA

Written & Performed by Sebastien Heins
Directed by Karin Randoja

Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera is a non-stop, high energy, one-man show using original music and physical theatre to tell the parodied story of two brothers living the Hip Hop Life. Taking the audience from the 1970s all the way into the future, this fast-forwarding/rewinding live-hip-hop show is written entirely in rhyme and cleverly crafted song lyrics. Sébastien Heins utilizes Hip Hop and R & B, Rap, Soul, Funk, and Gospel to take the audience on a touching journey of family and brotherly love. Brotherhood is a triple-threat performance of theatre, dance and the immersive experience of being at a live hip hop show.

As a student at the National Theatre School of Canada, acting student Sébastien Heins conceived of his first 15 minute iteration of Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera, then called CashMoney & MoneyPussy, chronicling one tragic night in the lives of two hip hop superstars. Upon graduation, he was invited to the international United Solo festival with his now 60 minute production in New York City. Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera has since been featured in SouloFest, ClownFest, Piece of Mine Festival, and b current’s rock.paper.sistahz festival.

“as diverse as it is absorbing to watch…. incredibly expressive movements and storytelling…. If any play were to capture and define such a genre as “hip hopera,” this is the one.  Brotherhood is a fascinating work from someone no doubt at the start of a thrilling career.” – Mooney on Theatre

 

“A REAL GEM.” – Live in Limbo Review 

“A Starmaking performance.” – Drew Rowsome Review
