Some Like It Hip Hop, Into the Hoods, The Mad Hatters Tea Party and Message In A Bottle, are just some of the iconic shows that will be revisited in Mixtape, an explosive evening sweeping through 20 years of ground-breaking storytelling by Kate Prince and ZooNation.
Since 2002 ZooNation has inspired the next generation of theatregoers and theatre makers with its extraordinary work inspired by the music and culture of hip hop. Mixtape presents excerpts of past shows reworked with twist, paying tribute to the dancers, performers, creative teams and audiences along the way.
Co-directed by Dannielle ‘Rhimes’ Lecointe and Bradley Charles, with Musical Director DJ Walde, Designer Ben Stones and Lighting Designer Charlie Morgan Jones, plus live vocalists and special guest performers from the past and present. Special guest performers include Tommy Franzen, Nafisah Baba and Gavin Vincent.
Described as ‘outrageously entertaining’, ‘dazzling’ ‘fierce, funny and powerful’ ZooNation productions have been setting stages alight for the last 20 years. Don’t miss the latest show in this trailblazing tracklist!
As part of this celebration, free exhibitions transform the foyers into a vibrant space showcasing the productions and artists that have created ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company, with a special exhibition honouring the life of the late Teneisha Bonner.
