After much success with the original play, many have asked if we will set up this piece again – good news! «Pieces of Man» will be set up again at Nordic Black Theatre & Cafeteatret from 16th – 23rd October 2020.
Gil Scott-Heron is well known for his mesmerising mix of poetry and politics, he became known as ‘the godfather of rap’ and ‘the black Bob Dylan’. He was also a novelist and activist, with a huge influence on rap, soul, slam-poetry and modern music generally.
This play takes its title from a classic example of a Gil Scott-Heron track – it is poetic, political as well as being very emotionally touching.
«No one can do everything, but everyone can do something» Gil Scott-Heron
Etter stor suksess med forestillingen Nordic Black Theatre sette opp «Pieces of Man» igjen fra 16. – 23. oktober 2020.
Gil Scott-Heron blir ofte kalt «Gudfaren av rap» eller «den første MC» etter at hans poesi og spoken-word ble smeltet sammen med fengende funk, soul og jazz. Ordene, musikken og aktivismen hans ga inspirasjon til en hel generasjon av musikere og aktivister som sikret hans status som afro-amerikansk ikon.
