A 21st century Austerity Britain immersive show inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties.
Being broke never looked so fierce!
Darren Pritchard Dance and Common Wealth invite you, the audience, to pay to come to a party, so that they can make this month’s rent, and entertain you with all their 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.
Rent Party has been commissioned as part of the Moving Roots Touring Network. Moving Roots, a creative touring network led by Battersea Arts Centre with producing partners Lyrici Arts (Medway), Jumped Up Theatre (Peterborough), Common Wealth (East Cardiff) and The Old Courts (Wigan)
This is the first of three collaborative touring productions, Rent Party is a show made with, by, and for the local community with world-class artist Darren Pritchard (Rent Party, Mother of the House of Flava, House of Ghetto). Each partner is re-imagining Darren’s unanimously critically acclaimed hit show with a local cast throughout 2021; passing the mic around the working class communities themselves and platforming the incredible talents of professional, often unheard artists in their local areas.
Artistic Director – Darren Pritchard
