Shlomo and the Vocal Orchestra in: BOXED
January 7-8 2010, 7:45pm
Purcell Room, Southbank Centre, London
Southbank Centre are proud to present the first performances of BOXED – a brand new “beatbox theatre” show from Shlomo and the Vocal Orchestra.
This epic escapade sees our beatboxing heroes travel to the future and back via outer space, dropping some soulful vocal gymnastics and slickly staged theatrics along the way.
“This show will be like beatboxing’s answer to Stomp, Blue Man Group and Into the Hoods.” says Shlomo. “I can’t tell you how excited I am about it!!”
BOXED is a turbo-charged story of friendship and adventure demonstrating the power of unity using nothing but the voice boxes of the 10-strong cast. Performing jaw-dropping vocal routines and tunes spanning the musical spectrum from hip hop to jazz to drum n bass and opera, BOXED is not to be missed!
“This brilliant, effervescent ensemble of rapping, riffing, improvising youngsters could drown out the QE2’s foghorn… Slick theatrics… soulful vocal gymnastics.” – Evening Standard
