About the event
An immersive, site-specific performance by Bim Ajadi.
A hip hop music drama, Here/Not Here combines Krump dance, Visual Vernacular and street football trickery.
Funky, funny and thought-provoking, HERE/NOT HERE explores how we all try to find our place. It showcases a new visual language for story-telling combining sign, dance, music and Visual Vernacular (a visual signed poetry).
Directed by Bim Ajadi, led by disabled artists, and written by Britain’s foremost advocate for Hip Hop, Jonzi D, HERE/NOT HERE can be fully enjoyed by both Deaf and hearing performers and the audience.
