Why Beavers Build Dams: A Hip-Hop Fable
In this eight-minute hip-hop storytelling performance, we follow the journey of a beaver doing what a beaver does – building dams. But not everyone is a fan of the dam-building beaver!
At the heart of the story is a tale about ecology and our duty to protect nature and wildlife. Using the hip-hop form and some puppetry, this one-person performance features a variety of characters to tell this tantalising tale.
Julian Alexander will also perform his Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
There will be various pop-up performances throughout the Royal Docks across summer, with multiple performances taking place on the advertised day. Check back for the latest information!
