Hands Up Hoodies Down by Zell Miller III and Chelsea Manasseri at The VORTEX in Austin, Texas—Saturday 19 September 2015
The VORTEX in Austin, Texas presented Hands Up Hoodies Down—the return of this critically-acclaimed hip hop theatre and dance piece for our times—livestreamed on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Saturday 19 September at 8 p.m. CDT (Austin) / 6 p.m. PDT (San Francisco) / 9 p.m. EDT (New York).
Hands Up Hoodies Down is a protest song sung in the key of high octane spoken word stanzas exploding through tears and heartache; it's the balled fist full of possibilities; it’s the feeling of the day after the riot and no place to buy groceries; it’s the mother's moan and the father's wail. How do we react when human beings are taken out of existence?
