Theatre Jamal Harewood: The Privileged
Part of: Our new Oct – Mar season , Orbit 2016
30/09/2016 - 01/10/2016Have you ever seen a polar bear in the flesh? Been close enough to notice just how white these magnificent mammals are? Remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest apex predator, with black skin. Jamal Harewood is a live artist who creates temporary communities through participatory events, and believes that these events should be a playful experience that allows everyone to get involved. The performances created focus on ideas of identity and race within the community. He has a keen interest in abolishing the performer/audience hierarchy that frequently occurs within theatre. Each performance will be followed by an optional talkback session for participants to engage with after the show has taken place.
