FIND ME AMONGST THE BLACK
Boy meets Girl. Boy and Girl fall in love. Girl’s Brother finds out. Beats Girl… But Girl defends Brother against Boyfriend…
Provoked by the Birmingham riots of 2005, this highly charged work explores the once common ‘black’ identity in a bold new work that incorporates film to interface with visual dialogues in theatrical situations. This moving and disturbing story uses movement involving various dance styles, including south Asian forms of kathak and bharatyanatyam.
