Liminal Space presents the European premiere of Six Rounds by award winning African- American playwright John ADEkoje and is directed by Prav MJ. Six Rounds is a no-holds-barred exploration of identity, and mortality on the streets of New York.
In a metaphysical boxing ring, we experience the story of Ace, a black youth of 'sculpted body and mind' who makes tough decisions that have far reaching consequences. Ace seeks the truth as a hip-hop DJ cuts and scratches to the beat of his life. John ADEkoje's self described "tragicomic hip-hop concerto" weaves an unconventional tale of morals, love and the realities of the streets.
