A Wonka-Riffic Trip: Spoken word poet and performer, Sheri Purpose Hall is creating her own rendition of the masterpiece Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The original story enthralled us, the images that Roald Dahl created and the movie interpretations have solidified the fantasy of Willy Wonka’s candy emporium. Now Sheri Purpose Hall is reinventing these stories with a contemporary urgency and a new and profound strength.
A Wonka-Riffic trip: The Tunnel, The Boat, The Words, The Music— Travel through a Wonka-Riffic tunnel of words, sounds, and images twisting fantasy and reality together. The show combines the poetry of Charlotte Street’s 2019 Generative Performing Artist Sheri Purpose Hall and the music of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory performed by a live band. This work will re-envision our current state as a nation and city through poetry and music and nostalgia.
