In the Mix is a new collaboration between Theatre-Rites and 20 Stories High. A series of residencies will be programmed in the North and London, centred around a new family show developed through research with young adult parents, young carers and their 3 to 6 year old children from working class and culturally diverse backgrounds. The production blends Beatboxing, Hip Hop and Puppetry and activities will include interactive family workshops, showcasing the ‘adult’ aspects through performance evenings, for example hip hop jams and taking workshops into children’s centres.
We are thrilled to announce that we have been awarded a Strategic Touring Grant from Arts Council England for the production.
Joyce Wilson, London Area Director, Arts Council England said:
“I am really pleased that we can fund Theatre-Rites' collaboration with 20 Stories High, and its production of the In the Mix project. In the Mix will bring together beatboxing, hip hop and puppetry to offer new artistic experiences for both the young and the young at heart. As the Arts Council reaches out to audiences in new ways and through new forms of expression, projects like In the Mix are central to our mission of Great Art and Culture for Everyone.”
