We are forming a performance collective for women of colour to create a new piece of work: Hive City Legacy. This will be performed in the Sackler Space. This is a paid opportunity for the selected performers.
What’s the project?
HIVE CITY LEGACY
Pollinate :: Activate :: Liberate :: Make Way for Matriarchy
Hive City legacy is locked, loaded and ready to strike back! It’s time to get in formation, as we’re searching to bring together a league of extraordinary Femmes of Colour with intersecting tales from a new London Town. Armed with a fresh coat of stories to sweep the stage, we are calling on the boundary breakers, the shape shifters and the movement makers to Seize the Mic and create a brand new production. In partnership with The Roundhouse, International Creators Lisa Fa’alafi and Busty Beatz (Hot Brown Honey) team up with Yami “Rowdy” Lofvenburg (Breakin Convention) and a mobilised troop of WOC in a new creative alliance set to explode the stage with the unseen, the unheard and the erased. In the tradition of decolonising one stage at a time, let’s start the legacy needed to shift the paradigm.
