Work in progress performance as part of Room: Mixed Bill 1 on Wed 16 Nov.
Six artists delve into Mia's memories to unravel how life got messy. Through bboyin' and spoken word, Mia journeys from a funeral, to the consequences of mid 90s RnB slo jams, to being a mum. Glorious-Mia is a delicate, and ugly exposé on the female role in hip hop culture, lessons in folding paper aeroplanes, controversial emotions of motherhood, and learning to let go even if there is a crucial incapability to correctly eat spaghetti. It is about learning to fly, and soaring. It's about Love. Glorious-Mia is for hip hop heads who don't attend the theatre, and theatre audiences unaccustomed to hip hop. Targeted at 12yrs - adult, the narrative is relevant to everyone who is, or ever has been a teenager, and for everyone who is, or will be a parent. The work aims to be a discussion point, especially between parents and the adolescents in their lives.
