It's Festival Time for The Theatre of Grime!

It's Festival Time for The Theatre of Grime!

This summer we’re thrilled to be performing our show 8SIXTEEN32 by The Decypher Collective at Latitude Festival in Henham Park, Suffolk on Sunday 17th July.

Fusing word, comedy and a tailor-made score of* beats*, rhythms and melodies, 8SIXTEEN32 is a breath-taking, tongue-twisting tale of life and lyrics where four MCs clash with their biggest competitor yet…

There’s no set, no props, we’ve got a van and packed our camping gear and the Decypher Collective – Evoke, LCB, Professor D & RTkal – are ready to put on a great show in a tent, in a field, in Suffolk.

If you’re going to the festival we’d love to see you at the Theatre Arena at 12.10pm on Sunday.

Borne out of a unique 2 year creative development process, The Decypher Collective, with its “meticulously timed delivery of vocal pyrotechnics” (The Birmingham Post) has established itself as Birmingham’s leading urban music and theatre outfit.

Having toured nationally and internationally to festivals, clubs and theatres with their self-coined ‘Grime Theatre’ style, individually the artists also work in education, have released solo albums, produce music, write for theatre, DJ and host live events.

Watch this space for further dates to be announced of our national tour in October.
