Oxygen: a hip hop translation

As part of Slanguages, Dr Noah Birksted-Breen and Professor Rajinder Dudrah have been working with artists Lady Sanity and Stanza Divan to produce a hip-hop theatre version of Russian play Oxygen, written by Ivan Viripaev and translated by Sasha Dugdale.

In October 2018 we held a research and development performance at Birmingham City University for invited guests, followed by a Q&A with the artists and creatives. See the overview film below to learn more.
