As part of their new BEYOND THE BOX SERIES, Telluride Theatre is bringing NYC band Soul Inscribed to present this truly unique one-night-only event. Cannabis The Concert marks the inaugural performance of the ongoing series, which will bring original performance from theatre-makers from around the country to Telluride. Cannabis The Concert is a theatrical event that shares the story of cannabis through Hip Hop and Spoken word with a soundtrack that spans Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, The Beatles, and Bob Marley. The show also explores themes of liberation, racism, activism, and mass incarceration in our politically charged times. This project is inspired by “Smoke Signals: A Social History of Marijuana - Medical, Recreational, and Scientific”- by Martin A. Lee (2012).
