For hundreds of years we have been using compasses, star charts and environments to guide us on our journeys. RupLoops' latest show, Magnetic North, uses this as a metaphor to calibrate the moral compass that lives in our hearts and focuses in on the voyage that awaits us when we align our passions with our purpose. Through the use of samples of endangered environments and animals in "BC", music, lyrics and interactive games, RupLoops' latest offering will encourage us to take action in a world that requires it of us. In a time when climate change and human impact endanger our future, Magnetic North, encourages the growth of our relationship to justice and the natural world around us.

For almost a century we have been tuning into radios to be informed and entertained. RupLoops' new show, The Human Radio, will take you on a journey of sound exploring anatomy, geography and culture. Let's investigate the brilliant design of our auditory and aural systems that allow us to create and listen to music. Through body percussion and beatboxing, Rup demonstrates and teaches how the human form is indeed a musical instrument. With a mix of hip-hop, blues and bhangra, The Human Radio tunes into themes of home, identity, culture, justice, dignity and celebration.
