    Oxygen

    (UK / Russia)

    Written by Ivan Vyrypaev, translated by Sasha Dugdale, directed by Deborah Shaw

    A LIFT and Royal Shakespeare Company production

    Oxygen was an explosive late night mix of words, music and dance: a raw, visceral take on the Ten Commandments for a dispossessed generation by one of Russia’s leading playwrights and film makers Ivan Vyrypaev.

    This extraordinary collaboration featured RSC actors Dharmesh Patel and Sophie Russell performing alongside the 2008 World B-Boy champions Top9, from St Petersburg, and DJ Hobot, one of Russia’s leading club DJs. A  searing and violent text mixed with breathtaking world class breakdancing and music.
