Come and get with the beat as Shakespeare’s sonnets are brought to the streets with the dynamic Hip Hop Shakespeare Company.

Founded in 2009 by MOBO award-winning hip hop artist Akala, The Hip Hop Shakespeare Company (THSC) is a music theatre production company aimed at exploring the social, cultural and linguistic parallels between the works of William Shakespeare and that of modern day rappers.  Launched with the support of British actor Sir Ian McKellen, THSC delivers bespoke education programmes offering young people a different view of the arts and ultimately, themselves. THSC also produce interactive live music events/theatre productions showcasing the work of up and coming young talent who share the stage with established artists, poets and actors.
