Pleasance 10Dome, 30 July – 24 August 2008
Reviewed for The List, issue 610
Rap is the language of rebellion in Babasword Productions’ dystopian futuristic England. The central dichotomy – change from within the system versus rebellion against the system – is essentially a very simple one, which is dissected down to molecular level halfway through this 70-minute rap battle. Occasional descents into un-theatrical ‘lecture rap’ are easily excused by Babasword’s extraordinary freestyle poetry.
