High Rise Estate Of Mind

High Rise Estate Of Mind

4.9 (17) · Contemporary, Poetry & Spoken Word, Fringe Theatre

Part of the Homegrown Festival: Occupy, at Battersea Arts Centre

Overview

We all need homes...
it needs to be fair
We all need safe, clean homes
it needs to be fair
We all need to be housed.

A stunning new show from the makers of No Milk For The Foxes, Denmarked and Frankenstein, exposing young people's fears about where they will live. Will they ever be able to aford to live somewhere clean and safe? Is it a fair race, or is the system fundamentally f****d and a home is just a modern-day pipe dream?

High Rise Estate of Mind tells difficult-to-swallow truths through a dystopian lens using grime, beatboxing, hip hop, looping and MCing. A fast-paced, urban story about class and housing, frustrations, inequalities and the pointlessness of it all at times.

Featuring performer/beatboxer Conrad Murray, spoken word author Paul Cree, rapper Gambit Ace and spoken word artist Lakeisha Lynch Stevens (AKA grime MC Lady KI KI).

Critic reviews

The vision of Conrad Murray (beatboxer and writer) feels experimental and makes a strong statement about the seeming futility of it all

The Upcoming

A gritty and realistic take on the housing crisis and how it affects us all, all told through song, spoken word and beatboxing. A perfect start to a perfect festival of the under represented in this country
