Join rapper and writer John Akinde,also known as OSOM and Opera Singer Themba Mvula for this exciting new project in collaboration with Theatre Peckham. Through five online workshops, and one ‘in person’ event you will learn about Rap, and the operatic form of Gilbert & Sullivan. You may have heard loads of Gilbert & Sullivan before and just not realised it!

Through the sessions, you will work with John and Themba to learn about how to use your voice, both in rap, and opera. There will be opportunities for sound scaping, writing and performing your own lyrics – whether that will be as a rap or in song, you decide…

In the final session, your work will be recorded and shared on YouTube.
