Tarish “Jeghetto” Pipkins: The Hip Hopera of 5P1N0K10

Set in an Afro-futuristic post-apocalyptic realm, The Hip Hopera of SP1N0K10 (pronounced “Spin-o-kio”) is a science fiction tale about an android who wants to be a real B-Boy. It’s co-written by Pierce Freelon and Tarish “Jeghetto” Pipkins, and performed with Tarish’s two sons, Divine and Tarin. Featuring an original score by hip-hop producer Hir-O, video, and emceeing, Jeghetto’s magical plywood marionettes share his “artivism” as the title character encounters racism, oppression and police brutality on their path toward a better future.
