Prepare to be amazed by the explosive tricks and artful dexterity of Simple Cypher’s newest outdoor production Roll Play.

Three performers blur the boundaries between hip hop and circus, using intricate moves and virtuosic agility to give a captivating, cheeky and effortlessly cool performance. 

A folding bench is the meeting point for three strangers from different walks of life; a park bench, a bus stop, a waiting room. What unfolds is a series of playful interactions challenging identity, status and societal roles. Divisions between class, race and education are shattered as the characters go on a journey of building trust, lending support and discovering connections between one another.  

Simple Cypher fuse circus and hip hop to create new, uplifting experiences. Simple Cypher is a company built through the foundations of Hip Hop and Circus. Style, originality and unity are key fundamentals of Hip Hop culture and have a profound influence on the work the company creates.  

Roll Play is supported by Without Walls, Arts Council England, 101 Outdoor Arts, Déda and Stratford Circus Arts Centre
