Unreal Hip-Hop

by The Staff on June 19, 2014


This show, featuring “hip-hop’s supernovas,” is a Jacob’s Pillow exclusive, and the performers and program are exciting and imaginative.

The all-women Decadancetheatre will perform 4, their reimagining/reinterpretation of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. B-girl “extraordinaire” Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie will perform a series of solo dances, including one set to James Brown’s anthem, “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s Man’s World.” And the Boston-based Wondertwins (pictured) will perform their signature “rapid-fire pop n’ lock.”

Unreal Hip-Hop opens Wednesday (June 25) in the Doris Duke Theatre at Jacob’s Pillow (358 George Carter Road, Becket, Mass.) and runs through June. 29. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 8:15 PM, and Saturday and Sunday at 2:15 PM. Tickets are $42, $22. For more info, call the box office at (413) 243-9919.
