THEATRE

Acclaimed rapper and world record-holding beatboxer Testament smashes together UK Hip Hop with the iconic poetry of William Blake. Celebrating the greatest counter-cultural voices in British history, Blake Remixed fuses music and storytelling with a live DJ and interactive video.

Made in collaboration with Scratch DJ World Champion DJ Woody, the show brings cutting social insight to a coming of age story with a difference. The show features filmed appearances from internationally renowned UK Hip-Hop artists Soweto Kinch, Jehst, Ty and Shlomo.

Blake Remixed was initially developed at West Yorkshire Playhouse with Leeds based producers LittleMighty as a co-production.
