A Tribe Called Yes

"Can You Kick It? Yes You Can! Vol 1: Rhymes and Bars" is a beginner level improv workshop to open the door to getting comfortable doing improvised rapping. The focus will be on getting comfortable rhyming, and using exercises, games and mental skills to achieve that. Then the class will work on utilizing rhythms and beats, provided by your instructor/DJ, as a structure to put your lyrics on. Finally we'll work on including your newfound skills into some scenework, rather than just using them as a standalone exercise. By the end of the class you should feel more comfortable jumping into a game or MC circle/cypher and laying down some bars.

A Tribe Called Yes (Seattle) is bringing their immersive hip-hop improvisational experience to headline the 2018 West Coast Musical Improv Festival! This troupe brings together actors, musicians, and MCs to tell the story of underdogs on a freestyle trip to fame and misfortune. Every show begins with a live DJ firing up his turntables as soon as the audience enters the auditorium and can’t stop (won’t stop) until the audience has experienced a story about the feuds, fame, and family that shaped the world of hip-hop.

Make sure to also check out their Sunday, July 22nd workshop (Vol. 2), and their West Coast Musical Improv Festival performance with Dystopia! The Musical on Saturday, July 21st at 9:00 pm!
