Race Today Showcase Performance
Race Today is a new uncompromising, funny, political and interactive performance.
A new performance showcase where some decisions rest with the audience! Writers of colour have created immersive scenes as a part of a workshop process engaging with the topic of race and representation in today’s society.
This began development in the Barbican Open Lab scheme in January 2017 challenging the writers to attend the Black Cultural Archive in Lambeth to gain inspiration from the historical archive. By introducing the writers to the 1970’s publication Race Today, their scenes gain a prism through which to tell stories of the modern British PoC experience. Now in its final development at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre, the showcase will open it to the public this April!
Join us to experience a single unique and complex show made from the stories of six writers; Olu Alakija, Sharmila Chauhan, Stella Ajayi, Karla Williams, Edd Muruako and Tristan Fynn-Aiduenu.
