A politically charged rap fable, which has been described as ‘8 Mile meets 1984’, The Rebel Cell is the result of a collaboration between BBC Slam Champion Dizraeli and Baba Brinkman, creator of the award-winning Rap Canterbury Tales, and this year’s Rap Guide to Evolution.
The Rebel Cell is set in 2013, in a not-so-distant dystopian future England, where civil liberties are a thing of the past and Glastonbury is a Guantanamo-style prison camp for those brave enough to fight against it.
Engaging directly with today’s culture of political tension in which one man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter, The Rebel Cell is an irreverent political comedy that asks challenging questions about human rights and the rule of law.
