Bounce's Insane in the Brain

The classic story of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest is injected with a large dose of hip hop energy by Bounce. This exciting company is known for creating high energy, imaginative street-dance theatre, enjoying hit runs at both the Peacock Theatre and the Roundhouse.

In the confines of a psychiatric hospital, breakdance becomes a way of expressing freedom and rebelling against the iron rule of Nurse Ratched – who happens to be a ballet fan...

The show features a fantastic soundtrack including hits from stars like Missy Elliot, Dizzie Rascal, Gotan Project, David Holmes and Cypress Hill.

Inventive set design (including bungee-jumping breakdancers), film and choreography are mixed to produce a fast-paced show that is at times funny, at times moving, and always packed to the rafters with high-octane dance moves.Based on the play by Dale Wasserman & the novel by Ken Kesey.

Contains adult themes and some violence. Parental discretion advised.

Running time 1 hour 20 mins

“Insane in the Brain makes Ken Kesey’s classic story seem designed for a hip-hop makeover. Hip-hop’s skewed poses, crazy angles and zombie walks lend themselves to the subject; but Bounce transform the style into real theatre”
**** The Guardian
