Syncing Ink


Feb 3- March 5, 2017 (Alley Theater, Houston)

By NSangou Njikam
Directed by Niegel Smith

“Now what you hear is not a test/I’m rapping to the beat!” Gordon wants to learn how to rap, thinking it will gain him respect, admiration, and the attention of a beautiful woman. What he doesn’t know is that his journey to learn how to rhyme will take him not just deeper into Hip Hop, but deeper into his legacy and his purpose. Based on true events, NSangou Njikam leads us on a lyrical ride to discover what it really takes to freestyle. Directed by Niegel Smith, Artistic Director of New York’s Flea Theater.

“Under director Niegel Smith’s guiding hand, the characters and scenes slip easily into flashbacks, drug- induced dream sequences and spiritual epiphanies where hip hop terms like Flow incarnate into goddess-like creatures. The show is also just plain funny throughout.”

– Tarra Gaines, CultureMap – Houston

“Director Niegel Smith shoots these actors out of a cannon and expertly gives them plenty of room to fill up the space with big personality.”

– Jessica Goldman & Brandon Caldwell, Houston Press
