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 , puppeteer Mohsen and, from the Midlands, singer/rapper Elektric, 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.
A 20 Stories High and Theatre-Rites co-production in association with Unity Theatre, Liverpool
“Theatre-Rites, a company of genuine originality and flair”
"Great theatre should be about taking risks ... This play has it in the bag"
