Knock Against My Heart is a play written for Theatre Centre by Oladipo Agboluaje. It toured to audiences aged 14+ secondary schools in 2008.

Set to the music and soul of Rio’s favelas, this thrilling play was inspired by The Tempest and developed in a unique collaboration with Brazil’s acclaimed theatre company Nós Do Morro

“Knock Against My Heart was a complete theatrical experience… provocative, really sexy, painful and funny. It touched me in a deep way.”
