(I)sland T(rap): The Epic Remixology of the Odyssey

(I)sland T(rap): The Epic Remixology of the Odyssey is a mythical, lyrical, musical solo-performance with spoken-word and HipHop fused with live Ukelele that follows Black Ulysses on a soulquest to an exotic island in an escape from a hostile society rife with discrimination and gun violence.

(I)sland T(rap): The Epic Remixology of the Odyssey

Encountering a variety of creatures who help him find his role in society, Black Ulysses finds his 'shine' in the most unlikely of places.

Loosely based on Homer's Odyssey, Walt Disney's The Jungle Book, the writings of Joseph Campbell, the art of Romaire Bearden, and the autobiographical experience of being Black in America from Austin Dean Ashford, this show won top prizes at The American College Theatre Festival in Washington D.C's Kennedy Center, The San Diego International Fringe, Off-Broadway' s United Solo Festival, and was directed by Cole Wimpee.
