Coin Drop in association with HighTide, today announces further London dates for Danusia Samal’s Busking It, based on her own experiences as a licensed TFL Busker. Having recently played at HighTide Festival the production opens at Shoreditch Town Hall on 10 October, with previews from 9 October and runs until 20 October.
Stop Your Commute! Music is a powerful thing, it’s amazing what you hear when you stop and listen. Busking wasn’t Danusia’s first choice of job as a teenager, but a decade of singing to strangers has taught her to see the city anew. She takes us on an autobiographical journey through the London Underground, blending theatre, spoken word, original music and soul covers, with influences including Nina Simone, Sam Cook and Amy Winehouse.
An optimistic show about how, amidst the loneliness of the city, music might help us make change come.
Commissioned by the Shoreditch Town Hall; Busking It is supported by HighTide, Soho Theatre, RSC and Arts Council England.
