June 2-5 The Warren, Brighton
““People think this is an art form of animals…people from the street who have no sensibility … battle rap shows you there are geniuses who never got a GCSE in their lives”
Forget everything you think you know about battle rap.
We take a peek into the lives of members of a diverse, thriving sub culture. From the care worker who became UK champ to the mathematician taking the scene by storm, we look at the stories of those who step into the pit. BODIED is a new play drawn from interviews with the UK's top battlers.
The show features live rap battles, unique to every peformance, starring different emcees each night.
The stories are true. The battles are real.
