Joseph Toonga works at the forefront of Hip Hop in the UK and internationally. He describes himself as being in a continual search for an authentic reason to choreograph and frequently draws on real-life stories which make his work resonate with people under-represented in audiences for mainstream arts.
Born to Protest forms the second part of a Hip Hop dance theatre trilogy Joseph is creating to highlight black excellence and challenge racial stigma. 

Born to Protest aims to dismantle presumptions about the black male and female figure based on intimidation, danger and isolation, revealing instead character traits around fragility, vulnerability and a constant battle to prove oneself. This hypersensitivity of the black body in space is magnified by Born to Protest’s cast performing to a soundscape which sets up intense energy with Hip Hop beats and voice over.
