PERFORMANCE LIVE: KATE TEMPEST
See Kate Tempest perform her epic new musical story, Let Them Eat Chaos, recorded live at the Rivoli Ballroom with a trio of spoken-word artists sharing bite-sized performances on themes of contemporary Britain.
Fusing hip-hop, poetry and theatre, Let them Eat Chaos is set in the early hours of one morning and traces the lives of seven people, living on a south-east London street, who all find themselves awake at 4:18am.

A Battersea Arts Centre and Kate Tempest co-production
Performance Live: Arts Council England and BBC Arts in partnership with Battersea Arts Centre
Performance Poets Deanna Rodger, David J Pugilist and Isaiah Hull performed reflections on life in contemporary Britain, produced by Battersea Arts Centre and recorded live at the Rivoli Ballroom in South London.
This is the first programme in a new series called Performance Live that will put innovative performance on BBC television over the next two years. The series will see artists and arts organisations, from around the country, create and produce new work for television.
Performance Live is a collaboration between Arts Council England, BBC Arts and Battersea Arts Centre, which, following the success of last year's Live From Television Centre broadcast on BBC Four, will commission an adventurous strand of performances from theatre and dance, to music and spoken word.
