Sadler's Wells Associate Artist and artistic director of international festival of hip hop dance theatre, Breakin' Convention, Jonzi D presents a triple bill, including his acclaimed solo The Letter. The evening also features a top guest artist and Jonzi presents a new work, continuing three decades as a pioneering voice in hip hop.

Co-directed by Dawn Walton, The Letter explores the responses to Jonzi being offered an MBE. Using choreopoetic language, he paints a picture of "stunning rhythmical clarity" (The Stage), looking at this sensitive subject matter through the eyes of an animated cast of characters. The Letter is accompanied by a commissioned score by member of the Speakers Corner Quartet, Kwake Bass.

The evening also features a newly commissioned piece, exploring the broken lineage between the old skool and new skool hip hop generations, bringing Jonzi's unique perspective to evolving social issues. An exciting collaboration with Ivan Blackstock, of BirdGang Dance Company, it promises to captivate audiences with Jonzi's trademark wit, humour and style.

Tickets also available at News from Nowhere on Bold Street, Liverpool, and the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall:
