Welcome to the spoken world / Unspoken heard / Unfocused blurred / A bird of youth / A sooth / A truth / A muse of mind / You are divine / Feel me?—Marc Bamuthi Joseph, from Word Becomes Flesh

Works by the most exciting and influential hip-hop theater artists of today, young performers from across the United States and London who are mixing music, movement, rap, spoken word, and visual design to create an entirely new theater. As described by Harry J. Elam Jr., a leading scholar in the field: “This is a theater that in its form and content recycles elements from the past, but with a new spirit of possibility and a new urgency that speaks to the racial and cultural hybrid of today.”
The stars in the Boom Box Galaxy are: Carl Hancock Rux (Brooklyn, New York), Will Power (Beacon, New York), Marc Bamuthi Joseph (San Francisco, California), Psalmayene 24 (Silver Springs, Maryland), Jake Ann Jones (New York, New York), Zell Miller III (Austin, Texas), Dan Wolf and Tommy Shepherd (San Francisco, California), Jonzi D (London, England), Cristal Chanelle Truscott (Atlanta, Georgia), and Aya de Leon (Oakland, California).
