Part of The Last Word Festival, celebrating fearless storytelling.
What are you when you are always the other?
A solo show about identity, being a mixed-race black woman and always feeling like an outsider. Blending live vocal looping and spoken word, WHITE carefully considers the concept of mixed-race privilege, tries to connect clashing cultures and explores what it means to grow up mixed in contemporary Britain.
Combining ‘clever and engaging’ original songs, vocal looping and ‘deliciously current’ dialogue, Koko explores race in an approachable and contemporary way in this ‘incredibly vital’ piece of new writing.
’Brown approaches the subject unreservedly with humour and a complex personal perspective.’ – The National Student
