Who am I and who is the other? If you push me, I’ll push you. Or shall we both…
After the big hit that was Hip Hop Hoera!, Don’t Hit Mama now presents its sequel Hip Hop Hoera – The Remix. A show about I, you and we for children aged 4 to 8. Are you brave enough to ask another person a question? Can you help another person? You need each other, but how does it work?
Hip Hop Hoera – The Remix doesn’t get down on its knees or resort to clichés about hip hop, as it takes parents back to their first discoveries in hip hop music. It is a strong and cheerful show, while leaving space for emotions, too. A show that sees children follow with abandon, a playful invitation based in the appeal and the social norms of hip hop culture. With three phenomenal urban dancers, fantastic, colourful animated film clips and original forms of interaction.
Dancer and teacher Honey Eavis is no stranger to the hip hop scene. With Hip Hop Hoera – The Remix she is making a show that is all about being yourself, being different and being together: ‘In these times, the sense of community has come under pressure, so it’s important to me that we make young children especially aware of this: together we are stronger.’
