Q Brothers

About Q Brothers

Award-winning and internationally acclaimed theater artists, the Q Brothers generate original work fusing hip hop and theater, adapting classic stories to a wholly original, entertaining and fast-paced style of comedic performance that has been energizing audiences for over two decades. The Q Brothers conceived the term add-RAP-tation in 1999 with their Off-Broadway hit “The Bomb-itty of Errors.” MTV has called the Q Brother’s “Nothing short of brilliant” and Time Out London says “The rhymes—and the energy— just don’t stop…”

A perennial highlight of Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, The Q Brothers’ Hip Hop for Beginners workshop allows kids to lay down their very own hip hop track, featuring the Q’s, in a matter of minutes. The track is then emailed to their parents as an mp3. Some kids have been to the booth 10 years straight and have an entire album they made with the Q Brothers!

Ayodele Drum & Dance

About Ayodele Drum & Dance

In 2007, seven African dancers came together to learn the art of the drum to enhance and improve their dancing. The sisters were led by Tosha ‘Ayo’ Alston and the seed of Ayodele Drum & Dance was planted.

Ayodele, a Yoruba word meaning “Joy in the home”, is now a diverse sister-circle of performing artists committed to studying and performing drum and dance as a healing element. We’ve grown from that circle of seven to over twenty Queens who use African drum and dance to educate and motivate young women and children.
