Testament holds many titles: rapper (since the age of 14), critically acclaimed playwright, and Guinness World Record-holding beatboxer. In his new show, Woke, he explores hip-hop, feminism, and fatherhood as he picks apart his own prejudices and assumptions, ruminating on the ways society is laid out for his newborn daughter.

With a dose of wit, self-deprecation, and honesty, he comes to terms with himself in the wake of his daughter’s birth and explores new, often surprising, perspectives. In this high-energy and thought-provoking theatre performance, Testament fuses together beatboxing, spoken word, and hip-hop to breathe new life into universal insecurities and questions.
