Join us for a sneak peak of MARTYR LOSER KING, a new work written by Critical Breaks Artist-In-Residence Saul Williams.

The story centers around the character of MARTYR LOSER KING — a hacker from Burundi who becomes popular and evades authorities. MLK was inspired by current events both great and horrific — such as Edward Snowden, the Arab Spring, the Occupy movement and the militarization of drones, told through the lens of sci-fi, poetic storytelling, multi-media, and musical integration.
