Caleb Femi – SLOG: An Alternate Timeline
“What if the mandem were secret beekeepers?”

Following Caleb Femi’s latest EP ‘SLOG’ featuring the likes of Manor the Latekid, Jordan Stephens and Jamilah Barry, Caleb Femi brings an exclusive immersive experience to Secret Life of Gs.

Transforming the space into a sci-fi beekeeping haven using projections, music and performance, audience members will get a glimpse in the lesser known lives of the mandem.

SLOG: An Alternate Timeline explores ideas around young Black men, escapism and the importance of bees in our society.
