Simple Cypher

Simple Cypher throws down their unique fusion of Hip Hop choreography and contemporary circus to create an uplifting experience embracing individual and collective ambition. Roll Model is a playful exploration of finding your troupe, fitting in and how we’re shaped by the people we spend time with.

Featuring Breakin’, Popping, Litefeet, Tricking, Cyr wheeling, juggling and acrobatics, Roll Model is a high energy, high impact experience co-devised by the company with direction from international Hip Hop champion Brooke Milliner and scored with an explosive new Hip Hop soundtrack. A humorous, feel-good show for all the family. 

This show is co-commissioned by Basingstoke Festival and was inspired by a series of workshops held in Basingstoke.  

“Winning combination of Hip Hop, circus and comedy from Simple Cypher.”  

“Absolute highlight.. absolutely does what outdoor performance should do. Entertaining, accessible, while reflecting something back at us about how we all live our lives.”  

“Skill. Humour. Cool dancing. Gentle storytelling. This bunch know what they are doing. Loved it.” 

Roll Model is supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Co-commissioned by, Crying Out Loud, Boing Festival, iCCi / University of Kent, Creative Crawley, Basingstoke Festival and Swindon Dance. Supported by 101 Outdoor Arts Creation Space and the National Centre for Circus Arts.
