Psycho 6 at MAI explores gangs, pimping and prison with a hip hop theatre experience

Friday, Jun 10, 8 p.m. to Thursday, Jun 23, 9:30 p.m.

In this nuanced, tour-de-force performance, Psycho 6 weaves theatre, physical movement, dance and rap into a riveting story over a gripping soundtrack.  

“I have dreams, too. Like most of you. If I get to 25.”

Psycho 6 follows the journey of K, a young man who’s been in and out of foster homes and youth centres since the age of 9. His broken home, fiery temper and financial destitution have all led him down a path of increasingly more dangerous criminal activities. The play explores subjects that are rarely addressed in the theatre community: youth gangs, pimping, and the prison system. It takes a deep look into how specific socio-economic factors create a context in which marginalized people of colour are vulnerable to delinquency, out of sheer necessity.

There will be post-show talkbacks after Sunday matinees. Psycho 6 was developed in Teesri Duniya Theatre’s Fireworks Playwrights’ Program.
