We are going to see “Dreamscape” – a hip-hop performance written by prof. Rickerby Hinds.
“Ever have one of those dreams where nothing comes out when you try to scream?” The fatal Riverside police shooting of Tyisha Miller, which made national headlines in 1998, gets re-imagined through the powerful lens of hip-hop theatre. Using beatboxin’, spoken word and dance, two actors depict the inner life and death of 19-year-old Myeisha Mills. As 12 bullets rip through her body, Myeisha shares the memories of her life—the pleasures of softball, food, movies, kissing—with humor, beauty and pitch-perfect hip-hop rhyme.
