Lyrikal Fearta, Albany Theatre
Artistic director of Breakin' Convention and Sadler's Wells Associate Artist, Jonzi D presents a triple bill, including his acclaimed solo, The Letter, top guest artist Jane Sekonya and a new work, continuing three decades as a pioneering creative voice in hip hop dance theatre.
Co-directed by Dawn Walton, The Letter explores the respinses to Jonzi being offered an MBE and is accompanied by a score from a member of the Speakers Corner Quartet and Kate Tempest's Brand New Ancients, Kwake Bass.
The evening will also feature a newly commissioned piece, exploring the broken lineage between the old skool and new skool generations. An exciting collaboration with Ivan Blackstock of Birdgang Dance Company, it promises to captivate audiences with Jonzi's tradmark wit, social insight and style.
Info: Jonzi D, Lyrikal Fearta is at The Albany on 7 & 8 February 2014, 7.30pm | Book tickets
