Formed in November 2010 Rationale is made up of a group of hip hop dancers from Sheffield. They specialise in bboying, locking, popping house dance and emceeing.
In their first year they performed at many venues up and down the country and sold out at the Crucible Theatre's 40th anniversary with their groundbreaking show entitled In My Shoes. They also performed in front of 15,000 people at the Meadowhall Lights switch on concert alongside Tinchy Stryder, Matt Cardle and many other celebrities.
Through their exhilarating and witty choreography, Rationale are set upon bringing hip hop theatre into the community, inspiring its audiences, and bridging the gap between old and young. Rationale promises to transform the four walls of a theatre into an exciting melting pot full of passion, energy and street dance.
Already a multi-cultural group themselves, Rationale have the insight and flair to cause more than an encore or two. They combine impressive dance styles with thrilling soundtracks, juxtaposing real-life concepts against surreal sequences. True to the name, Rationale have formed the foundation of theatre of the future; integrative, passionate and, above all, enthralling work.
