What if someone fights, against the odds, against all their surrounding opinions and narratives to achieve the life they want, then realise it’s not what they need? 13 years after Dizzee Rascal’s debut album was released Debris Stevenson (Mouthy Poets) remembers how it gave her permission to re-define success against the odds and become a poet – but what has she forgotten along the way?
A fusion of poetry, grime and movement inspired by Dizzee Rascal’s genre defining album, Boy in da Corner, step into a pirate radio station, teenage bedroom and house party as an outsider battles with finding their voice.
There will be music, lyrics, poetry, dancing (if you’re that way inclined) and a story unfolding in-between the smoke, strobe and decks.
This event is a developmental sharing after 18 months in progress, the show will form the basis of an album and poetry collection to be released in 2018.
