Transatlantic Fire Organ Cypher
29 - 30 April 2017, The Khan, Sadler's Wells Theatre, London
Which nation can make the flames fly the highest? Find out at our first-ever fire-filtered freestyle cypher across the ocean!
We’ve teamed up with the phenomenal Breakin’ Convention to bring the Fire Organ to the International Festival of Hip Hop Dance Theatre in London. In collaboration with video artist Ali Hossaini and his team at King’s College London, we’re linking London with New York in a blazing transatlantic performance.
Guerilla Science invites London-based beatboxers and rappers to our first live transatlantic cypher. Spit lyrics into our Fire Organ in London as music transmits across the Atlantic Ocean from a NYC choir. Together we’ll explore cycles of life and death using the primal element of fire.
Hosted by 4 x Beatbox Champion Grace Savage on Saturday 29th, and Beatbox Champion MC Zani on Sunday 30th, special guest artists and festival-goers can test their freestyling skills on our Fire Organ. The beats will go back and forth with members of the Young People’s Chorus of New York City, led by artist and composer Kate Eberstadt.
Want to take part and use your voice with the Fire Organ? Festival tickets are available here.
