LEAP 2019 | Alexandrina Hemsley and Seke Chimutengwende: Black Holes

Unity Theatre, Liverpool, North West, United Kingdom

Saturday, October 5, 2019 - 19:30 to 21:00

Weaving poetic text and movement, Alexandrina Hemsley and Seke Chimutengwende retell the universe’s history from big bang to death. Speculating on how to be, with bodies carrying histories of marginalisation and anti blackness, they propel lived experiences onto a cosmic scale.
 
Alexandrina and Seke began working together in 2016. Exploring the potentials and problematics of Afrofuturism shapes their collaboration. They situate their bodies inside shifting and imagined landscapes, searching for hopeful possibilities amidst the harshness of past and present dystopias.


Part of LEAP 2019 Dance Festival, produced by MDI.
