Big Up! use the power of music, the power of play and the power of your imagination to create their shows. They were due to present their live hip hop and puppetry theatre show (normally for 3-6 year olds) as part of the the Easter season at the Southbank Centre, but it has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
However, Big Up! are making some great videos for you to learn some amazing skills during the lock-down called Big Up at Home!
Their first mini-series is on how to beatbox, with Grace Savage (four times UK Champion Beatboxer) - for all ages:
Creating Foley Sounds - Hobbit, International Beatbox Champion, is here to teach you 'How to Create Foley at Home' through vocal sounds. Foley is where an object or person is brought to life through sound effects.
They'll be adding new content weekly so check back for more beatboxing, puppetry and music that you can create at home.
Even though Theatre-Rites and 20 Stories can’t perform Big Up at theatres all over the UK this spring, they're bringing you Big Up At Home! Go to our Big Up at Home Playlist where you’ll find clips from the show and some fabulous at home activities created by the Big Up team. Big Up At Home is perfect for little people who want to be Big and Big people who might just have forgotten how to play.
