LOOPS is a brand-new Hip-Hop Theatre show from 20 Stories High, co-produced with Liverpool Everyman + Playhouse, bursting with heavy beats, beautiful lyricism, and raw energy.
Following a day in the life of Djibi – a young Black man living in a largely white area of Liverpool – LOOPS grapples with Stop and Search, institutional police racism and how it affects Djibi’s relationships with his family, friends, and wider community.
As well as exploring challenging themes, LOOPS is also a show full of activism, uplifting music, and practical strategies on how to deal with ongoing police encounters.
Accompanied by a pulsating live original score by rapper and producer Man Like Mally (BBC’s Rap Trip) and starring actor/rapper Winston Branche (Peaky Blinders, The Streets Where We Live), LOOPS is a vital piece of theatre for modern times.
Written by Keith Saha, the play was developed with the cast – as well as a group of local Black and Global Majority activists and artists.
