Rapping in ‘The City’
June 19, 2014 11:38
Before it troops off to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Incubator troupe
performs an English-language version of its rap opera.
‘The City’ storyline deliberately uses archetypes..
Rap is one of the most urban, down-and-dirty forms of musical expression around. That makes it a perfect fit – should you get the notion – for spinning a dark tale of misdemeanors, shady characters and sleazy setups.The City is described as a “rap opera written entirely in rhyme, performed as one continuous song.”
