RADA Stu­dio Theatre 16–18 August 2019.


 An auto­bi­o­graph­ic­al, music­al, the­at­ric­al storytelling adven­ture.

 When you dis­cov­er the power of your voice, what will you use it for?

A sui­cide attempt, a 30 foot fall from a moun­tain, a 25 foot fall from a build­ing: Marv Radio is a sur­viv­or. Man­tra is his true story of fall­ing and get­ting back up. After suf­fer­ing from depres­sion for many years, Marv found his pur­pose through hip-hop music, mind­ful­ness and near death exper­i­ences.

From South Lon­don to the Amazon Rain­forest, Man­tra is com­ing to RADA Stu­dio Theatre as part of Cam­den Fringe from 16th – 18th August 2019.

Marv has learned how sound and vibra­tion have affected the mind, body and con­scious­ness along with travels through the Amazon, Andes and more. These ele­ments have guided him to his sig­na­ture take on self-care and hol­ist­ic ther­apies, focus­ing on the voice as a centre of well­being.

He is, amongst oth­er things, a beat­box­er — per­form­ing on stages from Gla­ston­bury to The O2 Arena. He wanted to explore more than rav­ing, money and heavy bass­lines, lead­ing him on this jour­ney of self-dis­cov­ery to find the quint­es­sen­tial heal­ing voice.

Man­tra is that story, a story of nearly los­ing it all and start­ing again. As Nel­son Man­dela once said; “Do not judge me by my suc­cesses, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.”

 Pre­viewed at Cam­den People’s Theatre in 2018, Marv Radio’s Man­tra is com­ing to RADA Stu­dio Theatre as part of Cam­den Fringe from 16th – 18th August 2019.

Marv uses the voice as a thera­peut­ic tool. In March and April 2017, he facil­it­ated a pro­ject with laryn­gec­tomy patients in part­ner­ship with the char­ity Shout At Can­cer. The patients, who had their voice boxes sur­gic­ally removed were trained to beat­box, lead­ing to a live per­form­ance as well as a fea­ture on BBC Three’s Amaz­ing Humans. Marv also works as a sound ther­ap­ist and sees music as an agent of change.

Mantra’s press day with Q&A is at RADA Stu­dio Theatre, 16th August 2019 at 4:15pm. Tick­ets £10, concs £5. Show days are 17th and 18th August 2019 at 4:30pm Tick­ets £10 concs £7.50 book tick­ets at www.marvradio.com/mantra
