TuTuMucky doesn’t overtly tackle just one big political issue. The main concept that we tackled was the daily order and monotonous routine we have to face as human beings who are constantly stuck in a system. Who keeps us there...that is your own interpretation. But its about not being able to find self as a person who is manufactured and conditioned to just be 'another one'. Generally, the work looks at breaking classical forms and releasing that caged animal.
I have used my foundation as a movement palette base. As the dancers haven't come from a hip hop background at all, I can't oppose my training & technique onto them, we find a common ground between us. A new language. I just use my core hip hop foundations and theatre learnings as limitations for improvisational tasks or exercises to evolve this new way of moving. It is directed through my hip hop experiences but brought alive on stage through their contemporary bodies.
Post hip hop theatre for me is a generation of new artists within the hip hop theatre genre who weren't born in the 80's, who aren't immersed in the 5 pillars of hip hop, but who are experimenting with hip hop and using other mediums of theatre to express their art. For me it’s about using the core foundation of what you have been taught and finding your way of expressing yourself your own way; not sticking to the knowm foundations moves and grooves but using it as a catalyst for your own style of moving.
