Run It Back

An immersive show exploring how music connects and divides us will open in East London later this month.

 

Run It Back has been created by a group of emerging black theatre makers, and aims to celebrate Black British Club culture, from Grime to afrobeats.

 

This production is the latest in a string of sell-out shows from TYPT, Talawa Theatre Company's annual collaboration with emerging Black theatre makers, produced by Gail Babb.

 

Directed by movement director Coral Messam. Run It Back brings rave to theatre, exploring how Black British music liberates, connects and divides while fighting to stay alive in the face of disappearing spaces and changing legislation.

 

Coral Messam says: "Human connection through music is one of the most powerful and euphoric forces we know, it's incredibly empowering. Run It Back is our challenge to the negative stereotypes attached to modern Black British sounds and culture. Add some treble plus a big dose of bass, top it off with a DJ and MC and let the young people speak, vent and wild out! We're taking our places and bringing them back to life and we're going to take theatre by storm."

 

Run It Back opens at the Hackney Showroom on the 29th of August and runs until the 31st.
