Brixton singer Breis has switched his focus from educating students to taking the message to children in a show designed to bring potential hip-hop fans into theatres.
Breis (pronounced breeze) is the critically acclaimed recording rap artist, author and founder of Student of Life, whose sound is a fusion of hip-hop, jazz andAfro-beat.
His infectious songs are full of witty lyrics, wordplay and humour.
He is also the author of Brilliant Rappers Educate Intelligent Students and founder of Student of Life – a hip-hop inspired arts organisation that uses rap workshops to engage students and improve their self-esteem.
He has joined up with Oily Cart for the return of its not too cool for pre-school show – Hippity Hop.
Hippity Hop tells the story of The Runaway Pram, as the young audience help a lost baby to find her mum.
The show is suitable for children aged two to five and a relaxed/enhanced version is also available at certain venues for youngsters up to the age of eight.
Hippity Hop is directed by Patrick Lynch who has been directing theatre for young people since 2003.
The show is at Imagine Children’s Festival, Southbank Centre, from February 13 – 17.
