Presented by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities, the Hip-Hop Theater Festival is back for another year, running July 6-10. With elements including MCing, DJing, dance, graffiti and spoken word, hip-hop theater tells its tales through a diverse urban language.
Kicking off with a DJ Showcase at the Kennedy Center with some of the best turntablists in the country, guests will include legendary Rockin’ Rob from the Bronx and DMC USA Supremacy Champion DJ I-Dee. The festival will keep it moving with presentations at the Studio Theatre and Dance Place.
All events are free and seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Some events are ticketed with tickets available online via RSVP.
