This explosive exposé depicts the controversial rap artist’s profound reflection during his incarceration and provides an intimate and emotionally raw view of his poetic chaos. The production explores the boundaries of myth that exist between the real Tupac Shakur and the popular image of him most easily recognised through the exposure of media. The performance will use projected images, video and text to contextualize the narrative as well as combining Tupac Shakur’s lyrics and poetry with a dramatic rendering of his persona.
The piece is written and performed by local actor, Meshaun Labrone. With an uncanny resemblance to Tupac, Labrone’s performance is garnering positive reviews. He has performed the piece throughout the US and as far as London. Directed by Phillip Church, the show is presented by What If Works Productions, a non-profit organization offering theatre, film and music graduates, a creative bridge to transition from an academic environment to the world of professional entertainment.
