SKETCH THE RHYME

08/01/2011 9:30 pm

Interactive Hip Hop game-show where speed drawing meets rapping with live hip hop beats.
A collaboration of artists, rappers and musicians where the audience is as much a part of the show as the performers. Artists sketch on paper which is filmed and projected live. Rappers freestyle about what the artists are drawing and audiences are invited to participate as theimprovisation is structured into games. Games are inspired by Mr Squiggle, Pictionary and live animation.

The live musical accompaniment is courtesy of Sydney hip hop gents ‘The Phonies’. Sketch the Rhyme was developed during Underbelly Public Arts Lab 08 and performed to an audience of 1200 people over the two day festival. Since then Sketch has performed at a number of varied events including Melbourne Fringe Festival, Peats Ridge Festival, Oxford Art Market, Woodford Folk Festival, Smart Arts and Culture Connect.
