This Afrofuturism transmedia piece is written by and stars award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet, Darian Dauchan, who has appeared on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and abroad. Directed by Andrew Scoville, The Brobot Johnson Experience the show is playing a limited engagement through March 17th.

At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson. Tickets are $25 and are available at www.bushwickstarr.org

One hundred years from now, a race of Hip Hop androids known as Brobots will form a unit, The Tribe Called Space Quest, to spread their message of peace, love, and dopeness all over the universe. Through live looped vocals, rhymes, and beat-boxing, they perform the origin story of the first of their kind. They call it The Brobot Johnson Experience, a Sci-Fi Hip Hop solo concert that defies both space...and time.

The Brobot Johnson Experience is written and performed by Darian Dauchan and directed by Andrew Scoville. Scenic design is by Raul Abrego, with lighting design by Sarah Johnston, sound design by Matt Stine, costume design by Asa Benally, wig Design by Elizabeth Printz, properties design by Casey Alexander Smith, projection design by Katherine Freer, and dramaturgy by Jesse Alick.
