I'm teaching a workshop on stage presence and showmanship at the California Institute for Integral Studies in San Francisco this coming Sunday, February 28 from 10am to 1pm.
We'll learn how to work a room with our bodies by applying lessons from commedia dell'arte, musical theater, vogueing and other schools of movement. Come prepared to strut, dance, and have a ball.
The class is FREE and Open To The Public but space is limited so RSVP to email@example.com with "Rotimi's Work
My new show, HAIR, opened this past Saturday and what a magnificent night it was! The Victoria Theatre buzzed with the electricity of an excited audience encountering a "tribe" of performers and crew who have gelled together beautifully to breathe new life into this groundbreaking musical.
When HAIR opened on Broadway in the 1960s it gave voice to a generation tired of endless war, racial discrimination, environmental devastation, and sexual repression. Sound familiar?
In celebration of Black History Month I'll be at two branches of the San Francisco Public Library this week telling an original West African tale for children (and the young at heart) peppered with Nigerian folk songs, American spirituals, blues classics, and civil rights anthems. Please join me for these FREE events. Chinatown Branch on Tue, Feb 23 at 4pm
North Beach Branch on Thurs, Feb 25 at 3pm
