The Hoop Suite Project is a spoken-word rap opera created through a collaboration between one of Boston’s top performing dance and theater companies, Anna Myer and Dancers, and youth from Boston’s toughest public housing developments.The project melds classical music and dance with spoken word, rap, percussive instruments, and hip-hop movement, and incorporates inner-city teen artists, encouraging them to explore dance, drumming, poetry, and behind-the-scenes technical work in a professional setting. The project is built on a long-term educational plan designed to engender literacy, responsibility, and opportunity.
The preview will be followed by an informal reception for donors to meet the artists and help raise money to bring this 30-person project — including workshops for local youth — to northern New Hampshire.
