What do young people think about living in London?

Celebrate the dreams and aspirations of young Londoners with this thrilling theatre show. Drawing on their experiences, Unleashed shows London through their own words, dance moves, films and music. 200 talented young artists including Boy Blue Entertainment’s Da Bratz & Bluez have created a high-energy urban explosion featuring thumping baselines, drums, heart-felt political poetry, jaw-dropping hip hop dance and more.

'An angry, open and joyful show’ Independent ★★★★★

‘Youth projects on this scale are rare enough to warrant serious attention. The fact that this multi-platform entertainment is so successful is a bonus.’ Stage

Watch some of the Barbican Young poets in action performing a collection of their poems in Half Remembered.
