A Theatre-Rites co-production with 20 Stories High in 2019.
What happens when a beatboxer, a singer and a puppeteer arrive on stage, but nothing is ready? No set, no instruments, no puppets. No rules.
Come and watch as they create a world full of joy and chaos, where objects come to life and everything is possible.
Big Up! celebrates the power of music, the power of play and the power of our imagination. A perfect show for little people who want to be Big, and Big people who … just might have forgotten how to play.
The show was created in 2019 in collaboration with 20 Stories High, It was developed through research with young adult parents, young carers and their children, from working class and culturally diverse backgrounds.
After a successful UK tour in 2019, Big Up! was due to tour again from April 2020 with original cast members Clarke Joseph Edwards, Dorcas Sebuyange joined by Grace Savage and Teele Uustani. Unfortunately, the tour had to be cancelled at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.
