Danny Hoch (www.dannyhoch.com ) is an American actor, playwright and director. Founder of the Hip-Hop Theatre Festival, he is a senior fellow at the Vera List Center For Art & Politics and he sits on the board of Theatre Communications Group, United States. Hip-Hop Theatre is not as much about the form as it is about the Hip-Hop generation that includes issues of race, class, ownership, self-determination, the prison industrial complex, Reaganomics, police brutality, drugs, globalization and technology. The video also includes a post-performance discussion with the artist, moderated by Marlène Ramírez-Cancio.
