Elasticated Sound System

By Keith Saha and Julia Samuels
A 20 Stories High Youth Theatre and Young Actors Company Production

Our 10th Birthday Celebration show

MC STRETCH places the needle on the groove, and ramps up the volume.
The Bounce of the Dub Bass begins to vibrate and the stories captured in the vinyl begin to bend and resonate…

The Elasticated Sound System uses the company’s trademark blend of puppetry, poetry, live music and urban dance to tell the stories of 7 young people getting tangled up by life. Romance, race, sexuality, siblings and a meteor shower – urgent contemporary political stories are re-mixed with personal heart-felt tales.
