In the production, Hamelin is transformed into an urban underworld where the rats are a group of hooded ASBOS and the Pied Piper is sent to rid the town of this vermin. Within the walls plastered in graffiti and garbage and bleak grey fencing, a company of thirty seven performers produce an electric display of streetdance, vividly telling the story in dance theatre with no dialogue.
The 90-minute show is produced by award winning director & designer ULTZ; celebrated dancer, choreographer and Nike Athlete Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy; and legendary UK Hip Hop music producer Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante.
Pied Piper- A Hip Hop Dance Revolution opens at the Barbican on Thursday 5th March.
