Double Bill - What is Written/Spoken Movement
What Is Written’s The Art of Conflict follows a group of individuals who are the representation of mankind on Earth. Set in the gritty inner city of London, plagued by capitalism; materialistic greed; and technological advancements that separate us from reality and steal our independence. We follow these individuals as they navigate this harsh world that was designed to divide, as they search for the spark of love to end the conflict. What Is Written is a leading dance company, fusing contemporary, hip-hop and martial art styles. Producing an explosive mix of energetic, fast-paced choreography; lighting design; and original post-apocalyptic beats.
Spoken Movement’s Obibini is a hip-hop theatre show taking you on a journey of self-reflection. It’s a multi cross art platform, using dance vocabulary and rooted in hip-hop. The evening opens up on cultural hierarchy, challenging society’s perspectives and how this affects and shapes our culture today. In an immersive evening, the audience will experience a historical relapse and the emergence of worlds, where questions, domestic occurrences, humour and religions collide.
