Synopsis: The 8th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute sought to examine the broad intersections between urban space, performance and political/artistic action in the Americas. From the critical poetics of body art to the occupation of public space by social movements, the event invited participants to explore the borders, identities and practices through which subjectivities, hegemonies and counter-hegemonies are constructed in the spaces of the city and beyond. Frantz Jerome & Tommy Shepherd descend upon Trasnocheo with an impromptu performance to lighten the mood!Frantz Jerome is a lyricist and poet with extensive experience in arts education and workshop and program development.

Frantz studies writing at The New School University in New York City. He aspires to create proper opportunities for youth in the arts while practicing his arts as a skilled wordsmith.Tommy Shepherd a.k.a. Emcee Soulati is a veteran of the Bay Area creative scene and a core member of the hip-hop music and theater collective Felonious.
