Robert Hylton Archive - Year 2004
Verse - Excerpt / Original Length of work: 20 minutes
An improvised solo by Robert Hylton,fusing popping and contemporary dance.
Setting the pace for "Verse" is DJ/Producer Billy Biznizz performing live with his two turntables. He creates a soundscape with hip hop beats, hard rock guitar riffs and vocal harmonies.
Surfacing the edge of abstraction both performers seek to reinvent their separate forms whilst pushing boundaries and redefining the possibilities of hip hop based theatre in this bold and visionary work.
