We Were The Refugees
Mime and Mud
Prepare to be amazed by the explosive tricks and artful dexterity of Simple Cypher’s newest outdoor production. Three performers blur the boundaries between hip hop and circus through a series of captivating and playful interactions challenging identity, status, and societal roles.
A folding bench is the meeting point for three strangers from different walks of life: a park bench, a bus stop, a waiting room. Divisions between class, race, and education are shattered as the characters go on a journey of building trust, lending support, and discovering connections between one another – focusing on their similarities, not their differences.
Building on Simple Cypher’s recognisable fusion of circus and hip hop, Roll Play features breath-taking Cyr wheel, dextrous group juggling and feel-good choreographies performed to a pulsing urban soundtrack.
