Danielle Imara shares her experience of jail via a cutting-edge cabaret-style mix of original songs, dance and gritty dialogue.
She introduces long-term inmates such as repeat re-offender Babs, whose life transforms when she meets one of her victims face-to-face at a restorative justice conference. ‘Dehumanized’ is an electro number where Danielle and the Warden perform a robotic duet, and ‘Drugs on Tap’ is a poignant tap dance commenting on the high level of heroin use in UK prisons. This show questions the prison system’s current usefulness and promotes forgiveness instead of retribution. Music styles cover reggae, dub, electro and soul.
