What is Debris Stevenson's Poet in da Corner?

This semi-autobiographical piece presents a vivid technicolour world where music, dance and spoken word collide, and tell the story of how grime changed a girl's life and let her redefine herself. 

Somewhere between East London and Essex in a strictly conservative Mormon home, a girl is given a gift by her best friend SS Vyper. It's a copy of  Dizzee Rascal’s ground-breaking grime album Boy in da Corner and as soon as she finishes listening to it, her life starts to change. She begins to transform. She goes from feeling muted and restricted by dyslexia to tasting the power of her words, from feeling confused and conflicted about her sexuality to finding the freedom to explore it, from feeling totally alone to realising she's been given the greatest gift by her closest friend.
