Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.

Lil.Miss.Lady is HighRise’s fresh concept-rave exploring the history of grime music, through the eyes of a vigorous female MC, played by Lady Lykez.

Inspired by a series of interviews with influential players in the Grime scene, get ready to go on a journey through the sounds and visuals of UK bass music culture, reminiscing on UK Garage, Sub-Low, Funky House, Dubstep and Grime.

Prepare your gun fingers and bass faces, cos this one’s gonnabe DIRTEEE!

DJ Kaylee Kay (Rinse FM, Eskimo Dance, Misguided) & Fahad Shaft (The Concrete Jungle Book), will support Lady Lykez, as well as two of HighRise Theatre’s young alumni Michael Mbozo and Oreoluwa Ibikunle Shoderu.
