Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Jonzi D presents a mixed bill including his acclaimed solo work the Letter which premiered at Sadler’s Wells’ Lilian Baylis Studio in 2012. In addition, Jonzi presents a new work, continuing his three decades as a pioneering creative voice in hip hop dance theatre.
The Letter explores the responses to Jonzi being offered an MBE. Using choreopoetic language, he paints a picture of “stunning rhythmical clarity” (The Stage), looking at this sensitive subject matter through the eyes of an animated cast of characters played by Jonzi himself. Featuring a commissioned score – played live by member of the Speaker’s Corner Quartet Kwake Bass – The Letter offers a rare insight into arguably the best known figure and advocate of UK hip hop theatre.
The evening will also feature a newly commissioned piece, exploring the broken lineage between the old skool and new skool of hip hop generations, bringing Jonzi’s unique perspective to evolving social issues. An exciting collaboration with Ivan Blackstock of BirdGang Dance Company, it promises to captivate audiences with Jonzi’s trademark wit, humour and style.
Jonzi D will be supported by Freestyle Fictionary is a hip-hop comedy gameshow
