Rap Guide to Consciousness
About The Show
After a successful run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, 'peer-reviewed rapper' Baba Brinkman is bringing his latest critically-acclaimed hip-hop comedy, Rap Guide to Consciousness, to the SoHo Playhouse. In it, the Drama Desk Award Nominee will shine light on free will, brain cells, and the science of consciousness in this genre-bending performance. Brinkman's Rap Guides have been lauded by critics, including having been selected as a NY Times Critics’ Pick, for the melding of theater, hip hop, comedy, and mind-boggling science. With subjects ranging from religion to climate change, Baba combines the intimacy of a one-man show with the humor, wit, and excitement of a rap concert to create an experience that defies genre classifications, a whole new species of theater.
