Workshop on Rapping, Singing, Spoken Word Poetry and Acting By The British Council & PETA

The British Council in partnership with the Philippine Educational Theatre Association (PETA) brings Hip Hop Shakespeare to Manila for a series of workshops and performances from 3-6 July.

Founded in 2008 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 in 2009 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 and actors.

While in Manila Akala will deliver a workshop at the PETA Theatre Centre from 3-5 July. The workshop is for people with an interest/skill in rapping, singing, spoken word poetry and acting. He will also have live performances at PETA on 5 and 6 July.
