Poet in da Corner By Debris Stevenson, Royal Court
In a strict Mormon household somewhere in the seam between East London and Essex, a girl is given Dizzee Rascal’s ground-breaking album Boy in da Corner by her best friend SS Vyper. Precisely 57 minutes and 21 seconds later, her life begins to change… In this semi-autobiographical piece, step into a technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and discover how grime allowed Debris Stevenson to redefine herself.
Directed by Ola Ince
Music & Composition by Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante
Featuring grime MC Jammz
