Resident artist Koko Brown presents a work-in-progress performance of her new show WHITE.
“Where are you from?” “London.” “Right, but where are you really from?”
WHITE is a show about identity which blends spoken-word with live vocal looping. Join Koko as she considers the concept of mixed-race privilege, tries to connect clashing cultures and explores what it means to be mixed in contemporary Britain. What are you when you are always the other?
