About the event

Part 1: ID:Babylon
An international project exploring what it means to be a young person in Europe today. These are the spoken word performances exploring belonging, borders and Britishness in a white world, through a Black lens. No set. No boundaries. Just stories.

Featuring: Maymuna Abdi, Peter Johnson (The Repeat Beat Poet), Tayo Olowo-Okere, Tendayi Mutongerwa

A collaboration with Potent Whisper and the Albany

Part 2: What Protects Us
An interdisciplinary performance devised from stories collected using the Decameron Method of verbatim interviewing.

Four artists from three communities across two countries have made a show from a riot of unheard voices. Local stories from Deptford, Stratford and Amsterdam are brought to life to explore the moments in people’s lives when they’ve had the feeling of regaining control.

Featuring artists Gabriel Jones, Urielle Klein-Mekongo, Sebastian H-W, and Leila Sahir. Directed by Milone Reigman. Artist Mentors are Libby Liburd and Caleb Femi.
