Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Jonzi D returns to his creative roots to perform his 'lyrikal fearta'.

 

 

 

"Jonzi D seems right at home alongside the likes of Matthew Bourne and Wayne McGregor at London's leading dance house"

METRO

 

For many years Jonzi D has been known as the face leading the hip hop revolution that is Breakin’ Convention. Jonzi is now launching out on his own again, returning to the stage after ten years as a creator of sharp, relevant and poetic dance theatre with two programmes of works made up of past hits and new creations. Working with a small team of performers and a live band, both evenings will have music, poetry, movement, politics and wit; promising a rare insight into arguably the best known figure and advocate of UK hip hop dance.
