Based on the critically acclaimed original Hip Hop Theatre production which sold out a national tour, culminating in standing ovations at The Sydney Opera House in 2007, Survival Tactics has been made into a feature film. Reviews of the original Hip Hop Theatre production:

“A hot new performance hybrid, the cast are a powerful and diverse collection of talents, each performer has serious Hip Hop cred, a sophisticated project” –The Age, Melbourne

“There is art in just about every aspect; graffiti backdrops and costumes; turntablism and lots of breathtaking breakdancing and physical theatre. Survival Tactics is a challenging, energetic and relentlessly engaging work. Respect is due.” – Sydney Morning Herald

“a modern West Side Story” – Drum Media, Sydney
