The Shakespeare Hip Hop Fusion Project: Youth Performance Program is a free arts & literacy training program for youth aged 13-17 presented in association with the Toronto Public Library. Shakespeare and Hip Hop share many key elements: rhythm, lyricism and what Jay Z calls “the ultimate human story, the story of struggle, which is what defines us all.” This program connects youth to professionals skilled in both genres to explore and create great performance pieces. The stories, themes, and poetry from Shakespeare’s works, and Hip Hop, will serve as a point of departure to assist the participants in discovering their voices
This arts & literacy program will cultivate soft skills training, build self-confidence, foster speech arts and unlock the creative and artistic abilities of the participants.
The program will be run at
