Nov 3, 2017

How do you take something old and update it, re-frame and re-present it to a new audience in a fresh and engaging way? What if the thing in question is considered sacred? Should you even touch it?

The Q Brothers' hip hop "ad-RAP-tations" of Shakespeare have played all over the world -- from the Globe Theatre in London to the United Arab Emirates to Cook County Jail. We can't wait for you to hear JQ's reflections on working with institutions, side hustles, and the power of generosity. Take a listen!
