Event website

Using music, video, and found-object marionettes, the “The Hip Hopera of 5P1N0K10” spins the classic story of Pinocchio as an Afrofuturist parable about a robot that longs to be a real B-boy in a post-apocalyptic future.

5P1N0K0 encounters racism, oppression, and police brutality along his journey. This “artivism” performance for adult audiences offers a creative expression of the artist’s views on social justice and gives the audience a call to consciousness.

Prepared to be transported to another realm by Jeghetto and sons, Tarin and Divine. The original, pulsating score is by Hip Hop producer Hir-O.

All ages are welcome, but please note that this performance contains exaggerated mech anime-style puppet violence.

Saturday, September 16 at 7:00 PM (Doors 6:30 PM) & Sunday, September 17 at 2:00 PM (Doors 1:30 PM), approximately 45 minutes

Tickets are available for $15 in advance, $18 at the door, and $22 for preferred seating (pay-what-you-can-available).
