Some Like It Hip Hop

Some Like It Hip Hop is a story of love, mistaken identity and revolution, in a city where books are banned, and where women are kept subservient to men.  The story revolves around two central female characters, Jo-Jo and Kerri.  When they are discovered breaking the rules of the city, they are thrown out.  They decide they have only one option – to return to the city dressed as men.  It doesn’t take long for the two women to prove their worth, and it also doesn’t take long for Jo-Jo to fall in love with Simeon, the only educated man in the city.  If only she wasn’t wearing a moustache. . . It takes all their efforts to maintain their disguise, find love, and change the world.

Influenced by themes from the classic movie Some Like It Hot, the hit US TV series Mad Men, and Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, a complicated comical tale of love, mistaken identity, cross-dressing, gender stereo-types and revolution are played out in ZooNation's trademark style of Hip Hop, comedy and physical theatre.


Cloud Dance Festival

“The unbelievable Tommy Franzén. While watching this artist at work, the thought that there is only one of him becomes

particularly prominent, realising just how unreal this talent is.”

The Guardian – The Observer -

“Franzén is supremely good, combining an effortless technique with highly sophisticated musical phrasing.”

The Guardian –

“A role that allows Tommy Franzen to show off his stellar abilities as dancer and actor, layering dapper jazz rhythms and

comic clowning into the hip-hop mix. Franzen is credited with some of the choreography, which impressively pushes hip-hop

to a variety of narrative purposes.”

The Umbrella Organisation

“Tommy Franzen, one of the real stars of the show.”

The Arts Desk

“He proves a vividly inventive clowning dancer, as unexpected as mercury in some of his moves, crumpling

to the floor on collapsed limbs and bouncing back in a trice onto one hand, or flipping with eye-blurring speed.”
