The Players Theatre - 115 Macdougal Street, Manhattan

Rap Guide to Evolution interprets Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution for the hip-hop age, exploring the links between bling and peacocks’ tails, gangster rap music and elephant seals, and the species-wide appeal of Afro-centricity.

Evolutionary Tales is a Hip-Hop Theater Cycle written and performed by Baba Brinkman. The cycle will be running all month, but we will be getting together this weekend to see the show and discuss afterwards. After Friday's showing of Ingenious Nature we will meet with Baba Brinkman himself to chat!

More about Evolutionary Tales:
SoHo Playhouse Inc. presents Evolutionary Tales: A Hip-Hop Theatre Cycle at The Players Theatre playing May 31 through June 23. Written and performed by Baba Brinkman, the Canadian rap artist and inventor of a new hybrid form of theatre: part hip-hop concert, part stand up comedy, and part TED Talk. Evolutionary Tales: A Hip-Hop Theatre Cycle consists of Brinkman’s three hit shows, Ingenious Nature, The Rap Guide To Evolution, and The Canterbury Tales Remixed, celebrating the evolutionary view of life in its endless forms.

With original music and live turntablism by UK DJ Jamie Simmonds, these three shows uniquely engage with great scientists and authors, as well as today’s hip-hop megastars, smoothly merging history’s most important ideas and stories with comedy, theatre, and lyricism. Together, they launch the world’s first ever hip-hop theatre cycle.
