New York Times Critic's Pick!


The Brobot Johnson Experience

February 14 - March 17, 2018


An Afrofuturism transmedia piece written by and starring

award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet Darian Dauchan 

One hundred years from now, a race of Hip Hop androids known as Brobots will form a unit, The Tribe Called Space Quest, to spread their message of peace, love, and dopeness all over the universe. Through live looped vocals, rhymes, and beat-boxing, they perform the origin story of the first of their kind. They call it The Brobot Johnson Experience, a sci-fi hip hop solo concert that defies both space and time. 


All For One Theater and The Bushwick Starr are bringing The Brobot Johnson Experience, an Afrofuturism transmedia piece to an earth near you! Written by and starring award-winning solo performer, actor, and poet, Darian Dauchan, who has appeared on Broadway, Off Broadway, and abroad. The recently coined "Afrofuturism" genre is referred to by The New York Times as "...a political and cultural genre that projects black space voyagers, warriors and their heroic like into a fantasy landscape, one that has long been the province of their mostly white counterparts." At its core, Afrofuturism is about reimagining what the African American experience was and what it could be, and the show is designed to inspire both contemporaries and young people of color to tell outside-of-the-box-stories like Brobot Johnson.
