Igniting Hip Hop

Igniting Hip Hop

2Funky Arts were awarded support from Arts Council Englandís Igniting Ambition fund, to develop a hip-hop theatre project for young people. Based at Moat Community College, the project was delivered by internationally renowned dance artist, Donald Edwards (Olivier nominee through Phoenix Dance and star of Channel 4's Ballet Hoo!).

He worked in collaboration with sound / music artist Dave Dhonau, to create a stunning performance at Curve Theatre, as part of The Spark Childrenís Arts Festival on June 12th. Igniting hip-hop engaged pupils at Moat in dance, theatre and poetry and allowed them to create their own narratives.  The poetic element of the project was led by Apples and Snakes wordsmith Charlie Dark.

The result was a spell-binding performance of hip-hop dance, poetry, lyricism and theatre, reaching deep into the heart of hip-hop culture and its African roots.

The project is also supported by Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutlandís Dance Development Officer and Leicester City Councilís Ward fund.

It was Inspired by London 2012.
