Adventures in Hip-Hop, Theatre and Puppetry
20 Stories High and Theatre-Rites join forces to create a unique mash up of hip-hop, theatre and puppetry bringing together 4 amazing artists: beat-boxer Hobbit, b-boy LoGisTics , singer/rapper Elektric , and puppeteer Mohsen to form The Broke ‘N’ Beat Collective.
“Sometimes when I can’t stand on my own two feet / Or the voices in my head feel cracked and incomplete / I turn up the volume of my Broken Beats / The Big Heavy Bass sends moves flowing to my feet / Melodic rhymes fill my head and make me feel oh-so-sweet / Cos my Broken Beats help me feel alive / And not so Broke and Beat.”
Come and spend an evening with the Collective; a raw, gritty, funny and moving gig that explores the hardships faced by young people in the UK today.
Gripping tales, transfixing poetry and hip-hop puppetry like you’ve never seen before.
