Ready to blossom and overgrow the past
In Wachten op Gorro (Waiting for Gorro), the history of hip hop and spoken word comes alive through rhythmic texts. Interpreted by the hip hop collective NoMoBS (No More Bullshit), an Antwerp-based group comprised of various cultural backgrounds, the performance blurs societal lines. Through observing contemporary hip hop culture, NoMoBS both critiques and pushes the genre’s core identity. With a transient sensibility, the name Gorro comes from Moroccan culture and represents a life devoid of geographic attachment. All these elements shine through in NoMoBS’s show.
