The beauty and power of spoken word poetry runs head first into the electrifying energy of hip-hop dance as the Barbican Young Poets collaborate with dance company Boy Blue. 

Barbican Young Poets, past and present, come together for an electrifying collaboration with hip-hop dancers from Boy Blue to share their personal experiences of the nation in which they find themselves living through spoken word and dance.

Under the guidance of world-renowned poet Jacob Sam-La Rose and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, co-founder of hip-hop dance company Boy Blue, the show see poets interacting with dancers fusing the vitality and energy of spoken word with movement as they perform together on stage.
