We are really pleased to welcome Testament back to Chapel FM with his latest show—WOKE.
The twin juggernauts of hip-hop and feminism are on a collision course. And Testament reckons he’s the guy to sort it out.
A ‘conscious‘ rapper and World Record Holding Beatboxer, he thinks he’s a right-on kind of guy. He’s made theatre shows and had his poetry on Radio 4. Then his daughter is born and suddenly he’s not so sure. That’s why he’s staying up late, lost in the dark worlds of the internet. Because that’s the place people go to talk about these things.
What will he discover as he starts to unpick his own prejudices? With a dose of wit, a knack for seslf-depreciation and a truck-load of honesty, Testament is ready to find out.
Expect beatboxing, spoken word, storytelling and hip-hop classics as you’ve never heard them before. WOKE - The new theatre show by rapper & beatboxer Testament.
'Suffused with honesty and wit.' ★★★★ The Stage
'A heart-on-its- sleeve powerful piece of work' ★★★★ Yorkshire Post
'Testament is a one-man mashup machine' British Theatre Guide
Suitable for ages 12+. Running Time 80 minutes. Produced by LittleMighty in association with West Yorkshire Playhouse The, Royal Exchange Manchester and Roundhouse London.
Testament will be running a workshop at 5pm on the day of the performance. Contact us if you are interested in taking part.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is very limited at the Centre but there are plenty of options and good public transport links—http://www.chapelfm.co.uk/contact/
And how much does it cost?
We try to keep all our events at Chapel FM as cheap and accessible as possible. This is a Pay-what-you-can gig for anyone in our local area—LS9, LS14, LS15... We like to make as many as our events at Chapel FM truly affordable so we ask you to decide what you can afford to contribute £2, £5, £8... We won't take any money upfront but you can reserve yourself a ticket through eventbrite and then make your contribution on the door on the night. All moneys raised goes straight back into supporting our work at Chapel FM.
If you are coming from outside the area then we ask you to pay £8 for a ticket (which is still cheaper than all other venues that Testament is performing at on the WOKE tour)
Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?
