Do you remember the worst thing you ever did?


John Berkavitch is one of the most respected voices in the UK spoken-word scene. In this new work of hip-hop theatre he attempts to explore the idea of shame in an attempt to discover how he became the man he is today.


Joining forces on stage with 2 of UK’s best bboys, Berkavitch reimagines the most shameful moments of his life through a combination of spoken-word, hip-hop and contemporary dance, illustration, animation and music.
