Open Art Surgery is hip hop theatre dissected, examined and put under the microscope. It is about breaking down the fourth wall and showcasing raw talent and new work.
It offers hip hop theatre companies and performers, from dancers and musicians to emcees and visual artists, the opportunity to develop and experiment with new ideas, share new work publicly and receive mentorship from experienced hip hop theatre creators.
Participants spend one week workshopping and devising with mentors Jonzi D. With no pressure on an end product, Open Art Surgery allows artists to take creative risks, try something different or to test ideas.
At the end of the week, participants share and discuss their work with a live performance hosted by Jonzi D. Taking place in the intimate theatre space of Park & Dare Theatre, Jonzi invites the audience to question and critique the brand new work shown, giving audience members the opportunity to get inside the minds of the artists, and giving artists themselves the unique opportunity to question their audience
