Why See Debris Stephenson?

PlaysSpecial Events

A Poet In Da Corner

Self described as a "social carrier pigeon" spoken word artist Debris Stevenson uses an alternative, visceral vocabulary of poetry, music, movement and lyrics to explore identity. Tying together themes of mental healthy, sexuality, disability, education, race and gender, Debris' hard-hitting, wise-beyond-her-years rhymes and assured, confident flow land every potent punch, marking her as a voice of her generation.

Created as part of Represent, a platform nurturing the art of young female artists and their response to democracy, equality and inclusion in modern day UK, Debris' new work takes the audience on an autobiographical journey. Reflected in Dizzee Rascal's genre-defining album Boy in da Corner and its impact on her development as an artist, Debris delves into London's grime scene, a pirate radio station and teenage bedroom to tell her story of self-discovery.

This bracingly clever, bleakly funny play offers no easy answers to any of its questions: what is justice, what is vengeance, and which is right?
