A Live Jazz Comic Book Adventure is Coming to Curve Inside Out Festival
Marcus Joseph Presents… PARADIGM RHYMES: BEYOND THE DOME Feat. Sophia Thakur A LIVE JAZZ COMIC BOOK ADVENTURE..
Paradigm Rhymes : Beyond the Dome is a futuristic tale, a fast moving performance of spoken word
narration, live jazz music and projected comic book digital imagery.
Within the Dome the minds of young people are controlled. History has been revised and all art is banned. Creative acts are crimes; the worst crime is playing the music of improvisation – jazz.
At critical points in this story, you the audience will be presented with a choice of two options facing the young lead character. It is up to you to decide which option to take. You decide the path of this story…
Beyond the Dome is based on the ‘Choose your own adventure’ stories, written from a second-person point of view, with the narrator/Spoken Word Artist assuming the role of the lead character. The audience make choices that determine the main character’s actions and the story’s outcome.
Khyia has a secret. She keeps it locked away and to herself. Khyia’s desire is for the return of better times – when artists, poets, rappers, singers and musicians were free and were part of a world full of choices, creativity and music.
Only Khyia’s best friend Idelle share’s her dream. So when they fall out Khyia feels alone and against
But who’s the crazy weird old man nobody else sees?
Why is he so interested in Khyia, as if he knows something about her? Where did her uncle disappear
to, and why is a classmate stalking her?
In a world of no choices, Khyia’s secret is her only weapon. Will she dare to use it? Dare to be
different and defy the system? Does she even have what it takes? …
Or should she put an easy life and family first, by doing what all the other kids do and conform to life
within the Dome?
What would you do if you were Khyia? What would you choose?
