BIRMINGHAM Repertory Theatre has taken its first show out on the road – and is making the most of new opportunities.

With the traditional theatre closed, the Rep is looking for new venues and has chosen the industrial A E Harris Building in Hockley for its production.

And this background is the ideal space for The Rememberers which aims to combine hip-hop and a graphic novel genre.

Writer and performer Kenny Baraka says the site is integral to the piece.

“It is set in a post-Apocalyptic time and the actual shows takes place in the base camp of the narrator,” he says. “It needs a very specific venue where everything is a part of that world. So everything is very makeshift. It has a favela feel. Much of the staging is remade, recycled and ripped – things like used bus seats.”

‘Kenny was a real highlight of our Arts Enrichment week; highly engaging and energetic, he ensured all students participated and gave them the encouragement and confidence to perform their own raps in front of the whole year group – it was quite impressive! Student feedback was overwhelmingly positive and we’re looking forward to welcoming him back to Anglo European again this year.
