Tales from the council estate of dodgy best friends, that rite of passage; your first arrest, dinner with your social worker and the Christmas dad went prison.
An autobiographical performance told through storytelling, singing, rapping and a loop station.
Created by Conrad Murray and developed with Battersea Arts Centre, DenMarked explores the extent by which we are marked by events.
