It is 4:18 in the morning. London. A nameless street. Seven residents are kept awake by fear, alcohol, too much or too little work. Relentlessly, from the off, the cry: “Europe is Lost”. Rapper Kate Tempest’s focus is the loneliness of urban inhabitants in the digital age. Claustrophobic, rushed, gentrified. She has published poems, produced plays and won numerous prizes. Last year, her first novel The Bricks that Built the Houses was published and her new album Let Them Eat Chaos released. A road, a time, seven lives. In the end, the floodgates are opened. Kate Tempest is 31 years old. Deutschlandfunk has called her “the most significant poet in England”.

In May 2017, Tempest will curate the Brighton Festival and perform an orchestral version of Let Them Eat Chaos. For the Volksbühne, this will also be performed with a choir. The performance in Hangar 5 will be the only concert worldwide with such a lavish production. The virtuosity and diversity the furious, breathless wordsmith and impassioned rapper attains beyond the various media is demonstrated by the electrifying and urgent live performance. South East London has tempered Kate Tempest’s language to a sharp-edged sword. On stage, her voice sounds as if she has too little time and much still to say.

Production: Let Them Eat Chaos: Rearranged commissioned by Brighton Festival.
Production choir version: Volksbühne Berlin
