Part of Dazed New World Festival 2020
Presented by Sabrina Richmond
Set in a row of terraced houses; three households, three sets of relationships – a grandmother and grandson (Vanessa White-Smith and Tats Nyazika); two half siblings (Chad-lee Brown and Patrick Bayele); a couple with an electric connection (Jonathan James and Khadija Richmond) – try to reorder their worlds as they once knew it.
What is A Black Story – living life.
"This piece was created through the lens of my endless fascination with relationships in general and my curiosity about how relationships are now changing during this time - for many, it is proving to be a litmus test for the relationships that they currently have and/or perhaps once had in their lives. As a Black African storyteller, my work is often referred to as 'a black story', which of course it is because I am Black and I am an African - a richness of identity which not only influences how I see the world, but also shapes my experiences in & interactions with it. In many ways, it is impossible to separate the audacity it takes to live your truth especially as an artist from the weight of the structural, systemic inequality the outside world places on one's life. This new work 'A Black Story' I hope is an expression of a theme I repeatedly return to in my artistic work - connection & healing. A universal desire sought in all human relationships.’ - Sabrina Richmond, Playwright and Director of A Black Story
