Thugs, Bones, Harmony

“The hate you gave little infants f**ks everybody” is the breakdown of the THUG LIFE acronym Tupac Shakur had tatted on his belly. Before exploding metal cylinders sent his body to the pavement and his soul to Heaven’s ghetto, he’d already survived five bullet wounds, gone to prison, and spent months in solitary confinement.

At this Saturday’s Miami on Stage: A Night of Hip Hop Theater, catch 2Pac’s story during Meshaun Lebron Arnold’s darkly themed “Right to Remain.” Then watch in awe as internationally respected Miami b-boy Rudi Goblen fuses a story about the insanity of American values with his incredible break-dancing techniques in “Insanity Isn’t.” Then laugh your way through Summer Hill Séven’s poetic comedy “Shakespeare N. Haarlem,” about a Latino Muslim spoken-word artist sentenced to death for lyrical terrorism. Miami hip-hop theater is a live-action force in thought-provoking entertainment.
