About this Event
Deep Cuts by Y&T Rep Company in collaboration with Limehouse Townhall
Written by Catherine Palmer and Jeremiah Muguwe
Concept by Marin Distafa
Devised and performed by Y&T Rep Company
‘Wondering as a youngen
What is my destination?
Destined to inspire nations
Not rapping just conversation’
Kane, is a bright, aspiring young rapper with the whole world ahead of him.
When the whole world is taken from him.
Deep Cuts explores young people’s relationships to the themes of health, race and inequality. Y&T Rep Company have spent a year researching these themes and devising a performance responding to them using spoken word, rap, physical theatre and naturalism.
This production focuses on the impact of austerity on the NHS and role in increasing youth violence in London, particularly knife crime. The production questions the ways youth violence is represented and how young people are understood in society as their spaces, education and future opportunities are cut. It asks how these circumstances contribute to facilitating youth violence and how we can break the cycle of hate in London.
Doors at 7pm. Show starts at 7.30pm

About Limehouse Townhall
Limehouse Town Hall is a place where working artists and cultural producers, audiences and communities are supported to share ideas, try out new things, and imagine a better here and now.
Housed in a grade II listed building, Limehouse Town Hall acts as a hub for creative and cultural activities. As one of the last remaining versatile and multi-purpose cultural spaces in the city, the town hall makes interesting things happen.
The building is run and maintained almost entirely by unpaid trustees and volunteers. Find out more here: https://www.limehousetownhall.co.uk/
We regret to inform that the Limehouse Town Hall building is not currently wheelchair accessible (we’re working on it though!)
Thanks to Pilot Theatre for filming and editing and to Zoe Heath for image design.
