Nathan James' one man show "Growing Pains" will appear in the United Solo Theatre Festival 2012.
Through spoken word poetry, monologues, movement and multi-media imagery; my one-man show, Growing Pains, illuminates the voice of the true authentic culture of the Hip Hop generation. It takes a first-hand look at the births of the mentalities of urban African-American males, as opposed to the constant highlighting of stereotypical behaviors found in music videos, social media, and nightly news.
Growing Pains explores how we end up where we are in life based on our personal experiences. It examines the influence of media and upbringing over the way we view politics, beauty, each other, and most importantly ourselves. It taps into the part of the human spirit that enables us to empathize with one another as individuals, even if we can't always relate to each other's life experiences.
The show will play Theatre ROW: 410 West 42nd Street, New York City, on October 14, 2012, at 2:00 pm. More dates TBA. For more information, visit www.officialnathanjames.com or the show page on United Solo's website.
