Prepare to be amazed by the explosive tricks and artful dexterity of Simple Cypher’s newest outdoor production Roll Play . Three performers blur the boundaries between hip hop and circus, using intricate moves and virtuosic agility to give a captivating, cheeky and effortlessly cool performance.
A folding bench is the meeting point for three strangers from different walks of life; a park bench, a bus stop, a waiting room. What unfolds is a series of playful interactions challenging identity, status and societal roles. Divisions between class, race and education are shattered as the characters go on a journey of building trust, lending support and discovering connections between one another.
Simple Cypher fuse circus and hip hop to create new, uplifting experiences. Simple Cypher is a company built through the foundations of Hip Hop and Circus. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of Hip Hop culture and have a profound influence on the work the company creates.
Main programme event. Suitable for all ages. This is a free show so no tickets are required. There will be other performances taking place in the same location, with shows in this location running from 1pm onwards.
