Open Art Surgery is hip hop theatre dissected, examined and put under the microscope.
Breakin' Convention invites you to delve into the mind and souls of some of the UK’s finest hip hop artists as they dare to try something new, dangerous and exciting!
Line up: Jamie Berry with Rachel Pedley | Tommy Boost | Mariano and Rhian | The Artifact Dance Company | Treorchy Comprehensive Crew | The Rap Collective
After spending a week working under the guidance of two of the UK's leading theatre mentors, Jonzi D, Anthony Ekundayo-Lennon and Ivan Blackstock, our established and emerging artists present their work. See it for the first time, hear their creative journey and then share your feedback in this unique night of performances and live discussion.
Open Art Surgery is not about presenting finished work. The focus is to develop theatre skills with hip hop artists and to experiment with new ideas. Hosted by Jonzi D, you're invited to question and critique the work shown, giving you the opportunity to get inside the minds of the artists, and giving artists themselves the unique opportunity to question their audience.
Witness cutting-edge hip hop theatre as it happens!
