HIGH RISE eSTATE OF MIND
Robinswood School, Matson
Saturday 4th May 2019, 7.30pm
HIGH RISE eSTATE OF MIND is a fast paced, urban story about class and housing, frustrations and inequalities. It tells difficult-to-swallow truths through a dystopian lens using grime, beat boxing, hip hop, looping and MCing.
A stunning new show from the makers of No Milk For The Foxes which exposes young people’s fears about where they get to live. Will they ever be able to afford somewhere clean and safe? Is a home just a modern day pipe dream? Is it a fair race or is the system fundamentally f****d?
The show features Performer/Beatboxer Conrad Murray, spoken word author Paul Cree, Rapper Gambit Ace (David Bonnick Jnr), and spoken word artist Lakeisha Lynch Stevens (AKA grime MC Lady KI KI)
“THEIR VERNACULAR IS RAW AND AUTHENTIC AND THEIR DEADPAN HUMOUR IS BANG ON.”

“IT IS CLEARLY [MURRAY’S] PASSION THAT INSPIRES THESE YOUNG PEOPLE AND BRINGS OUT THE BEST IN THEM.”
