“Body Politic’s Father Figurine should be celebrated as one of the first full-length Hip Hop theatre works from a Hip Hop company based outside London that has multiple tour dates across southern England.”
“We would 100% programme the work again it produced such an outpouring of emotion from our college students in particular and I personally was incredibly impressed with the piece and the emotion it evoked amongst our audiences.”
