BEHIND-THE-SCENES | CRANKED workshop
Green Thumb is in week two of workshops for CRANKED by Michael P. Northey. We're working on adapting the show to present a top quality livestream this October. We are delighted to be connecting with new and returning artists to work through the details of an updated script and sound design, as well as all-new lighting design.
CRANKED will be available to secondary schools in this fall --contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or to book your conversation starter today.
Check out some snaps from the rehearsal process below!
By Michael P. Northey with hip hop artists Kyprios and Stylust
Stan, a.k.a. “Definition” is a rising freestyle MC – or at least he was, until his life’s passion lost out to his drug habit. Now on the road to recovery and preparing for a come-back show, Stan confronts his demons and recounts his harrowing journey through the wild highs and deep lows of addiction. Using spoken word and hip hop, this pulse-pounding, full-sensory experience deals in the brutal realities of addiction and drug culture, and the redemption that can lie in recovery. This highly popular production has been updated for digital presentation and includes content addressing the current fentanyl and opioid crises. As addiction weaves its way through communities across BC, this powerful piece is more timely than ever.
