Birmingham Live - Theatre: Kenny Baraka opens graphic novel in theatre as Rep goes on tour
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.”
With four weeks of a national tour spent @ The Birmingham Rep', BBC Midlands' short piece on The Rememberers; our hip hop, sci-fi, graphic novel.
