Lil’Tim was involved with performances from Jonzi D productions, where he did Theatre Shows including TAG and Workshops.
Jonzi D was the first person to bring Hip Hop Theatre to the UK. Breakin’ Convention is an international hip-hop theatre festival based in London, England that was founded in 2004 and is produced annually by Sadler’s Wells Theatre. It has been under the artistic direction of playwright and dancer Jonzi D since its inception. Since May 2008 Breakin’ Convention has expanded its activity beyond the three day festival to include tours across the UK. There are also plans to create Breakin’ Convention “Hubs” to develop and commission work with local hip-hop artists, and to produced year-round professional development courses for UK based hip-hop choreographers, artists, and dance/theatre companies.
