DenMarked by Conrad Murray. Beat box / hip-hop theatre.
Tales from the council estate of dodgy best friends, that rite of passage that is your first arrest, dinner with your social worker, and the Christmas dad went prison.
An autobiographical performance told through storytelling, singing, rapping and a loop station.
Conrad Murray is one half of hip hop theatre company Beats & Elements, and the director of the BAC Beatbox Academy. Recent works include ‘No Milk for the Foxes’ at Camden People’s Theatre, as well as directing the Beatbox Academy at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre and Latitude.
“Two young theatre-makers are mixing it up. Just what theatre needs.” The Guardian
“Mature and relevant, with an impressive amount of soul” ★★★★ The Londonist
Ages 14+: Contains strong language and content that references sexual violence/assault and could be upsetting to some audiences.
DenMarked was commissioned by and developed with Battersea Arts Centre.
