HipHop Teater Kollektivet (HTK) is an arts project that began in Hässelby-Vällingby, Stockholm. We work with children, families and young people.
In our work, we start with the HipHop philosophy where peace, love and community are at the center. We use a liberating and participatory pedagogy that allows everyone the opportunity to be a co-creator in the creative process.
Together, we share and explore stories, integrating theater with HipHop's various art forms - BBoying / Dance, MCing / Lyricist, Graffiti / Art and DJing / Music Production.
Practical, visual methods and tools enable people with different backgrounds to participate on equal terms. We see HipHop as more than a medium for expression, but also as a tool for understanding oneself and others.
HTK is led by Remi Tawose, British actor, choreographer and director, and founding member of DMAC UK, backed by a national group of creative, innovative and experienced artists, performers / educators. We collaborate with Kulturhuset-Stadsteatern in Vällingby and many of our activities take place in the premises.
We work mainly in Swedish and English, but the spoken language should never be an obstacle to participation. There are many ways to express yourself and communicate!
