Written and performed by the dynamic young artist Will Power, Flow is the tale of seven storytellers, their quest for survival in a world of modern, urban pitfalls, and the search for a new language to make age-old lessons endure for a younger generation. Portraying many characters, Will Power tells his story through vivid images conjured with eloquent rap and rhyme, and fluid, startling physical movement. DJ Reborn accompanies Will Power in Flow, punctuating the spoken word with music created specifically for the performance.
Flow is a co-production between New York Theatre Workshop and the New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival. The first three performances of Flow will be presented as part of the 2003 HHTF; the production will then have an extended run as part of NYTW’s 2002-2003 season. Last fall, with support from NYTW, Will Power and Danny Hoch spent one month developing Flow as the inaugural workshop of the newly created Jonathan Larson Lab.
