In 2009 The Dance Movement invited Rannel Theatre Company, known for their hilarious and exhilarating performances that combines dance, comedy, theatre and music, for an educational residency and to perform their work Fhlip Flhop.
The residency took place over a weekend and provided young people aged 10-16 with an opportunity to work and perform with professional hip hop artists Matt Bailey and Joey D.
As part of the residency, the youth dancers explored the technique of hip hop in relation to comedy and theatre on stage resulting in a performance which was presented as a curtain-raiser alongside Rannel’s piece.
Partners in the project included Frensham Heights School who hosted the performance in their theatre space.
The performance raised £1500 in audience sales, which covered the fee for running show.
