Track 96 is an improvised hip hop group that sits at the intersection of hip hop and improvised comedy. As performers, we feel it important to recognise and honour the legacies of the communities that have originated and expanded both artforms.
Hip hop is largely a product of African-American communities, growing from its genesis in the 1970s into the globally popular art form it is today. Hip hop is fun and accessible and is enjoyed by people of many different backgrounds and cultures.
Improv comedy in its modern form has evolved from such the work of artists in America, particularly the work of Viola Spolin and later through such comedy institutions as Second City, UCB, and iO.
As a group, we strive to both recognise the communities that brought these art forms to life and ensure our team is representative of the diversity that exists in London. We work very hard to ensure that we have individuals who are exceptional improvisers and rappers on Track 96.
