Plot 17

A hip-hop garden block party for audiences aged 7+

Till the soil, ‘til we strike oil
Deep enough to plant the seed.
DJ play the record, sound travel like a bee.
MC do a mic check 1, 2, 3
that’ll piped pipe ‘em to the block Part’eee…!

Plot 17 is a mobile block party travelling the world raising awareness, inspiring action and spreading the message of “making things green”, with a soundtrack guaranteed to make you want to plant a tree and sure to help the seeds grow.

Using spoken word, lyrics, visuals and DJ-ing, Plot 17 is an interactive performance for ages 7 – 11.

So far, Plot 17 has visited two primary schools in Coventry as part of the Contains Strong Language poetry festival and held a sold-out Summer Camp in the garden of The Albany theatre in Deptford.
