Part poetry slam, part theater, ‘In The Cypher’ goes back to the roots of hip-hop where words, music, sound, and fury work towards social change. Five poets, an MC and a DJ keep the audience jamming to poetic riffs of living in one’s own skin. Using slam poetry, candid interactions and researched material, ‘In the Cypher’ questions whether truth and identity are more than skin deep. No one is safe…in the cypher.
