Summary

Sometimes when I can't stand on my own two feet
Or the voices in my head feel cracked and incomplete
I turn up the volume of my Broken Beats
The Big Heavy Bass sends moves flowing to my feet
Melodic rhymes fill my head and make me feel oh-so-sweet
Cos my Broken Beats help me feel alive
And not so Broke and Beat.

The Broke 'n' Beat Collective is a unique mash up of hip-hop, theatre and puppetry which brings together four amazing artists: beat-boxer Hobbit, b-boy LoGisTics , singer/rapper Elektric and puppeteer Mohsen to form The Broke 'n' Beat Collective.


Written by Keith Saha, a playwright and the co-artistic director of 20 Stories High, and Sue Buckmaster, the Artistic Director of Theatre-Rites, The Broke 'n' Beat Collective is a unique theatrical experience filled with gripping tales, transfixing poetry and hip-hop puppetry. Funny and moving, it is a raw and moving play that explores the hardships faced by young people in the UK today.


This edition was published to coincide with a national tour of the play which opened in February 2016 in a coproduction between 20 Stories High and Theatre Rites.
