Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist and Artistic Director of Breakin' Convention Jonzi D presents a double bill of his acclaimed solo The Letter, together with a new work Broken Lineage, which continues his three decades as a pioneering creative voice in hip hop dance theatre.
The Letter explores the responses to Jonzi being offered an MBE. Using choreopoetic language, he paints a picture of 'stunning rhythmical clarity' (The Stage), looking at this sensitive subject matter through the eyes of an animated cast of characters. The Letter is accompanied by a commissioned score played live by member of the Speakers Corner Quartet Kwake Bass.
The evening will also feature a newly commissioned piece, exploring the broken lineage between the old skool and new skool generations, bringing Jonzi’s unique perspective to evolving social issues. An exciting collaboration with Ivan Blackstock of BirdGang Dance Company, it promises to captivate audiences with Jonzi’s trademark wit, social insight and style.
