CAN I KICK IT? / feat The Last Dragon / Recap
Our final CAN I KICK IT?, of the Hudson River Parks’ Hudson RiverFlicks outdoor screening series, couldn’t have been more hip-hop (from its early beginnings), an exercise in resourcefulness, or DIY.
The passing weather made it impossible for us to conduct the screening at the designated location, so the team at Hudson River Parks had a plan B: take an empty hanger/warehouse space that they never activate that had only 1 working light, bring in a generator for power, use one of the exposed bring walls for a screen, open up the garage doors, and bring chairs and the A/V equipment. The result was a uniquely memorable experience that was intensified by a raw space in New York. Classic.
The only downside were the people who could not make it due to our quick location change as well as those who were unfortunately turned away, as we reached our 200 max capacity very early.
We’ve had an incredibly fun run with the two CAN I KICK IT? screenings that we were fortunate to conduct as apart of Hudson River Parks’ series and we’re hopeful to come back next year.
Thanks again to Hudson River Parks for bringing us, props to everyone who helped, salute to everyone who spread the word, and thank you to everyone who attended.
