About the Event
Beginning with a young Caribbean soldier in WW2 Britain, this moving tale follows him and his family through their life in the UK up to the current Windrush scandal.
Darren Panton, who was the first black British dancer to graduate from the Royal Ballet School and Kidbrooke resident Patrick Williams, who danced at Alvin Ailey and the Paris Opera are choreographing.
Featuring original music by the groundbreaking Kinetika Bloco, the story is driven by a pulsating mix of reggae, calypso and contemporary black British music.
Funded by Arts Council England and the Black Funding Network, the show will tour arts venues and libraries around the country from October and will include the chance to chat with our dancers and creators.
