High Rise eState of Mind

Tue 7 May, 2019 to Sat 11 May, 2019

We all need homes……..
it needs to be fair
We all need safe, clean homes
it needs to be fair
We all need to be housed

A stunning new show from the makers of No Milk For The Foxes, DenMarked and Frankenstein exposing young peoples fears of where will they live, will they ever afford to live somewhere clean and safe, is it a fair race or is the system fundamentally f****d and a home is just a modern day pipe dream for many?

High Rise eState of Mind tells difficult to swallow truths through a dystopian lense using grime, beatboxing, hip hop, looping and MCing. A fast-paced, urban story about class and housing, frustrations, inequalities and the pointlessness of it all at times.

This show features Performer/Beatboxer Conrad Murray, spoken word author Paul Cree, Rapper Gambit Ace, and Spoken word artists Lakeisha Lynch Steven (AKA grime MC Lady KI KI.
