The Flyovershow 2011
20 Aug 2011
Now in its fourth year, The Flyover Show is breaking new ground with its most ambitious show to date. Set in its unique location beneath the Hockley Flyover, this year it brings together an international rostra celebrating Men who have defied stereotypes and made groundbreaking contributions to Black British and Urban Culture.
Featuring Iconic artists such as local Drum & Bass legend Goldie, UK Soul innovator Omar, MOBO award winning UK rapper Akala, New York based HipHop artist Why-G, Vancouver born Jazz trumpet protégé Jay Phelps and Jazz pioneer, virtuoso pianist, composer & BBC presenter Julian Joseph.
It also features the finest graffitti, theatre and dance work commissioned especially for the day and exploring its theme. The show is set to be a challenging, thought provoking and entertaining day, putting alternative art and culture centre stage.
The day is also about reclaiming abandoned spaces and transforming them into outstanding arenas of creativity and restoring the soul of the city - championing the belief that the very highest artistic expression can emerge and be staged in communities only associated with negative headlines.
