Hip Hopera from Canada – Brotherhood India Tour
Presented by THT Theatre

About Brotherhood
brotherhood-photo-credit-dakota-arsenaultTheatre, Dance and Rap come together in BROTHERHOOD: THE HIP HOPERA – A non-stop, high-energy, one-man show using music and physical theatre to tell the poignantly parodied story of two brothers living the Hip Hop Life. Taking the audience from the present to the 1970s, then fast forwarding thirty years into the future, it is written entirely in rhyme with cleverly crafted lyrics. Sebastien Heins utilizes Hip Hop and R & B as well as rap, funk and gospel to take the audience on a touching journey of family and brotherly love.

Brotherhood is a triple threat performance of theatre, dance and immersive experience of being at a live hip-hop show.

Created and performed by Sebastien Heins, it won the BEST EMERGING ARTIST AWARD at the United Solo Theatre Festival, New York.
