Mantra is a show like no other with a performer like no other. 3x Team UK Beatbox Champion Marv Radio immerses you in a storytelling adventure that is never the same twice.
Weaving together his own stories based on his journey through life, hip-hop and spirituality, Marv Radio’s Mantra combines the mediums of rapping, beatboxing, storytelling, movement and acting to change the way we think about beatbox, spoken word and theatre.
Marv Radio tells his story, reminding us of the impermanence and vulnerability in life, in death and in the moment. Taking us with him on his journey of mental health struggles, a suicide attempt, falling off a mountain, being guided by music, learning about meditation, travelling to The Amazon and eventually learning the healing power of sound, Marv shares his darkest and lightest moments in a playful, light-hearted but hard-hitting way.
His message is intertwined with pre-written and improvised songs, poetry, sound and movement and aims to bring the audience together in unity through a shared experience that takes us out of our heads and into our bodies and hearts.
This show contains strobe lighting. Age restriction: 14+
“Mantra delivers on all fronts” ★★★★ – The Student
