After the racist insults of Bow bobbies get to him, he runs off on a global search for his identity, chanting a new mantra "gotta-gotta go".<P>It is a sober subject for a hugely enjoyable show. Jonzi's Aeroplane Man melds dance, rap, song, comedy, music and the sheer desire to have a party with the audience. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Another very good one I missed!<P><BR><A HREF="Http://" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A><p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited June 03, 2001).]

Inspired by his own experience as a black man raised in east London, the piece traces the fictional journey of a man in search of his roots - fleeing a culture where he feels only half at home for a mythic motherland where he thinks he can be reclaimed.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><BR> <P><A HREF=",3604,500318,00.html" TARGET=_blank><B>More...</B></A><BR>
