The pioneer of hip hop theatre presents an evening of live music, poetry, movement, politics and wit.
Jonzi D, the best known advocate of hip hop theatre in the UK and Artistic Director of Breakin Convention, presents a triple bill. Co-directed by Dawn Walton The Letter explores the responses to Jonzi being offered an MBE, using Jonzi’s own brand of choreopoetry to look at this sensitive subject matter through the eyes of an animated cast of characters.
The evening will also feature a newly commissioned piece, exploring the broken lineage between the old skool and new skool generations, bringing Jonzi’s unique perspective to evolving social issues.
An exciting collaboration with Ivan Blackstock of BirdGang Dance Company, it promises to captivate audiences with Jonzi’s trademark wit, social insight and style.
