Sketch The Rhyme return to the inner west with their first show at the iconic Camelot Lounge in Marrickville.
Sketch The Rhyme will be drawing from their recent fringe experience playing 15 shows in 13 days at the Adelaide Fringe in March where they received a weekly theatre award.
Sketch the Rhyme is a hip hop - live art game show created and based in Sydney’s inner city. The show inspired by Mr Squiggle and Pictionary, is made up of a series of playoffs and games between 3 artists, 3 rappers and a live band. The Artists speed-sketch pictures relevant to a theme or topic, MCs then freestyle their response in rhyme, whether its improvising a story or guessing the catch-phrase.
Sketch The Rhyme was conceived by MC and Creative Director, Rapaport, and was developed through a 2 week collaborative workshop season between an assortment esteemed visual artists, freestyle MCs and improvising musicians during the 2008 Underbelly Festival, Carriageworks. The show has gone onto performing at festivals such as Edinburgh Fringe 2011, Woodford Folk Festival 2009 & 2010, Melbourne Fringe 2009 and the Sydney Comedy Festival Great Debate.
The thrill and danger of impro-theatre and the wit and charisma of freestyle battle raps is combined with fast paced illustrations to create a powerfully engaging and simply hilarious show.
The show thrives from the creativity, technicality and personality of the MCs and Artists. The MCs are Rapaport, P.Smurf from the group Daily Meds, and Jeswon from Thundamentals. The Artists Claire Nakazawa, Duckman, Sam Clouston, Edgarr and Mie Nakazawa come from a range of visual disciplines from street art and graffiti, to comics, cartoons and painting.
