New Theater and Rave Fusion Show Explores the History of Women in UK Grime
For one night only, theater and rave are coming together under one roof, all in the name of grime. Lil.Miss.Lady, a UK show that is "part rave, part drama," according to its website, will stream live on October 23rd, including pre- and post-show DJ sets from DJ Kaylee Kay, who is also mixing the show live.
During its 60-minute run time, Lil.Miss.Lady tells the story of a woman MC finding her way in the male-dominated world of grime music. Written and directed by Dominic Garfield, it was inspired by interviews with women who played a formative role in the genre, including Lady Stush, Lioness, Queenie and Baby Blue. Event attendees will venture from the early stages of jungle through the evolving sounds of garage, sub-low, funky house, dubstep and grime, set to original lyrics by Garfield and Lady Lykez.
