Sep 7 - Oct 8

Using spoken word, stylized movement, tableau, and music, an ensemble of performers delivers a series of letters from a man to his unborn son, documenting his range of emotions, fears, and expectations. Back by popular demand, Word Becomes Flesh critically, lyrically, and choreographically examines masculinity and responsibility from a young, expectant father’s perspective within the constructs of hip-hop culture.
