Poet in Da Corner was an incredible show that celebrated the impact Grime/Dizzee Rascal’s Mercury Prize winning album Boy in da Corner has and its importance. Comparing lyricism and flows to those of prolific writers studied in academia. Grime is incredible. Grime is truth and expression. To see a theatre production inspired by music which has been negatively stereotyped was moving in itself, reaching new spaces and audiences.
It was really special seeing Jammz on a different stage to where we usually see him shelling. Had goosebumps throughout.
