The Talawa Theatre Company is to stage an immersive theatre show Run It Back at Hackney Showroom in East London this Summer.
The new show will bring rave to theatre and aims to explore how Black British music liberates, connects and divides while fighting to stay alive in the face of disappearing spaces and changing legislation.
Featuring dance, physical theatre and a live DJ set from award-winning DJ Conrad Kira, Run It Back is written and devised by Ashlee Elizabeth Lolo Roberts and Dzifa Gazo with direction by Coral Messam.
Coral Messam says: “Human connection through music is one of the most powerful and euphoric forces we know, it’s incredibly empowering. Run It Back is our challenge to the negative stereotypes attached to modern Black British sounds and culture. Add some treble plus a big dose of bass, top it off with a DJ and MC and let the young people speak, vent and wild out! We’re taking our places and bringing them back to life and we’re going to take theatre by storm.”
