TAG…Me vs. The City

Choreography and direction by Jonzi D

TAG…Me vs. The City is a groundbreaking new Hip Hop dance theatre production choreographed and directed by the inimitable Jonzi D. Curator and host of Sadler's Wells' annual festival Breakin' Convention, pioneering artist Jonzi D is one of the most recognised faces of Hip Hop theatre, having already toured worldwide with Lyrikal Fearta and Aeroplane Man.

The story follows the life of a brilliant but obsessive graffiti writer desperate to challenge authority in the only way he knows how, with his spray can. Working with a company of six dancers TAG explores the concept of 'physical calligraphy' - using the body as paint. The result is a show which seamlessly fuses break-dancing, body popping, emceeing, turntablism and graffiti art with pure dance theatre.

For TAG, Jonzi has brought together an awesome group of collaborators. The show features some of the UK's finest Hip Hop dancers, an original sound-score by DJ Pogo (The En4cers, Block Party Breaks), state of the art video animation by Ben Wachenje (the7Samurai), lighting design by Jonathan Samuels and set design by infamous graffiti writer PRIME and Sculptural Graffiti.
