The Sugi Dakks Experience is a high energy one act interactive theater performance that unpacks the personal relationship one has with their own inner voice. This powerfully unique show perfectly blends elements of dance, rap, poetry, and original music with the thoughtfulness and creativity of compelling story-telling. With a complete lighting experience, a captivating story of mental health, and a dynamic performance by the up and coming Hip-Hop artist SUGI DAKKS, this show leaves those inspired in ways they didn’t think possible.


For Sugi Dakks, existing outside the norm is the norm. The left of center genre-bending Hip-Hop artist aims to embody all his quirks, idiosyncrasies, and mannerisms with a boldness and strength.

A mixed race (Japanese/African American) multi-instrumentalist/ rapper/singer/slam poet/producer/activist from a small town, Sugi Dakks is no stranger to being an outsider. His debut EP “Not All That Glitters is Gold” is an extension and enhancement of this message to find power in uniqueness.

To add to his artistry, Sugi Dakks has already made waves behind the scenes, producing releases with Grammy nominated Warner acts such as Wale and Chika and for commercial TV hit series such as “Power”, “Formula 1 Drive To Survive”, “Selling the OC”, “MTV Cribs”, “Love Hip-Hop, Atlanta”, “Real Housewives of Atlanta”, “Ru Paul’s Drag Race, and “The Kelly Clarkson Show”. And that is just the tip of the iceberg for one of Hip-Hop’s best kept secret and what people are calling the “Outkast for a new millennium”.
