Event description

Description

Conrad Murray will be running a free (but ticketed) workshop at 3pm on 8 June at the HOME on the High Street.

Are you interested in using and exploring your voice? Learn to beatbox, improve your vocal techniques and make your own music using nothing but your mouths - from Hip Hop and Grime to R&B and Dubstep.

Conrad is the writer and performer of the show DenMarked and Battersea Arts Centre's Beatbox Academy.

This workshop is for beatboxers, singers, rappers and spoken word artists of all levels.

Recommended age 14+.

This workshop is followed High Rise State of Mind at 7pm.

High Rise state of the Mind is a new show that explores why we need safe clean homes for all and shared fairly, told through beats and songs, using living looping and beatboxing.

Set in the future and now (although now is pretty much the Victorian age with added foodbanks), it explores the current housing crisis, and the psychological effects and anxieties that our homes (or lack of) have on us.

Told by a young-ish cast who are all dreaming about having their own place one day, it asks what happens when we move further away from the ground and our roots?

Led by Paul Cree and Conrad Murray, Beats & Elements use rap, beatbox, hip-hop, grime and spoken word to tell their stories. They use their own experiences to create drama that ask questions about class, and the effects that the class system has on people in this country.

These are What You Decide events, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have been to the workshop / seen the show.

We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at HOME Slough, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it.

Tickets are vailable to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

All money collected will help HOME Slough pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.

Please ensure you arrive 15 minutes before the workshop and the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the workshop / show, you can decide what to pay.
