RENT PARTY, a 21st-Century Austerity Britain immersive show inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties. Like the 20s, we invite you the audience to pay to come to a party in our flat, so that we can make this month’s rent, and entertain you with all our artist friends – dancers, singers, musicians, poets – who will create a kaleidoscopic picture of what it means today to be young, gifted, and black – and poor, and gay. Being broke never looked so Fierce. Once the performances stops the party doesn’t so stick around.
Come and join us for a fun filled party dance workshop
