The Spalding Suite
Combining original poetry with contemporary movement, The Spalding Suite is a new physical theatre show that celebrates the elegance and beauty of basketball. Seen from a British perspective, The Spalding Suite gets to the heart and soul of the gravity-defying game and delves into the hopes and dreams of those who play it, and the friendship and camaraderie behind the sport.
Conceived by spoken word artist Inua Ellams and directed by Benji Reid, the production combines live beatboxing, hip-hop, movement and poetry.
The Spalding Suite performed at Contact, Manchester and had its world premiere at Southbank Centre before touring the UK in 2015.
