Presented by Beats & Elements

A new show that explores why we need safe clean homes for all and shared fairly, told through beats and songs, using living looping and beatboxing.

Set in the future and now (although now is pretty much the Victorian age with added foodbanks), it explores the current housing crisis, and the psychological effects and anxieties that our homes (or lack of) have on us.

Told by a young-ish cast who are all dreaming about having their own place one day, it asks what happens when we move further away from the ground and our roots?

“Raw and authentic… and the deadpan humour is bang-on”The Stage on Beats & Elements’ No Milk for the Foxes (CPT, 2015)

Supported by CPT.

About the company

Led by Paul Cree and Conrad Murray, Beats & Elements use rap, beatbox, hip-hop, grime and spoken word to tell their stories. They use their own experiences to create drama that ask questions about class, and the effects that the class system has on people in this country. Their 2015 show No Milk for the Foxes was developed at CPT and headlined its The State We’re In festival of politicised theatre.
