The students of THEA 302 and THEA 308 present Under Milk Wood: a ‘hip-hopera’. Combining the kaupapa of hip-hop with the flair of doo-wop, this is a contemporary and localised take on Dylan Thomas’ iconic 1954 radio play. Drawing on the moral panic against kiwi youth in the aftermath of the Mazengarb report, this version recasts young people as the spokespeople, rather than scapegoats, for a diverse community. Music! Dancing! Rapping! Watch this cast of talented young performers transform Thomas’ Welsh fishing village into a seaside town in 1950s New Zealand. Purists may not approve, but we think the great Rock Star Poet would be all over this!
