Activate :: Pollinate :: Liberate
Hive City Legacy is ready to strike back with a league of extraordinary Femmes of Colour in a riotous shake up embracing the unseen and the unheard.
With a fresh coat of intersecting tales from a new London Town, this unapologetic, uncensored and genre defying experience brings together liberating live performance, redefined narratives and social activism to challenge, uplift, boundary break and celebrate.
Brought to you in collaboration with international creators Lisa Fa’alafi and Busty Beatz of Australian sensation Hot Brown Honey, alongside hip hop artist Yami ‘Rowdy’ Lofvenberg, an alliance of young artists are mobilised to appear together for the first time, equipped with the skills to shift the paradigm.
A fast, furious blast of beatboxing, body-popping, hip-hop, breakdance, mime, burlesque, aerial acrobatics and spoken word
Hive City Legacy pollinates the seeds of revolution… [an] explosive and invigorating show
More than just a show, this is weaponised theatre.
A fierce-spirited show mixing hip hop, dance, circus, and burlesque – with a sting in its tail.
