Cry of my Roots

Duet Josiane Antourel and Yna Boulangé revisit an original work Cry of my Roots, based on the work of the late Martinique choreographer Jean-François Colombo, and create an hour long piece that combines dance, video and theatre. Cry of my Roots was performed at the festival The Cultural Nights of Rivière-Pilote, at Tropiques Atrium National Scene in Martinique and the Tout-Monde Festival in Miami, in 2018. The show will tour to L' Artchipel in Guadeloupe in May 2019 before coming to the Bristol Old Vic and Tacchi-Morris Arts Centre this June.

 

SOLD

SOLD is a historic piece of theatre that dramatises the first account of female enslavement in the British West Indies; reminding us of Britain’s major role in slavery. Portraying the experiences of Mary Prince as a slave, passive survivor and her later attempts to change the system. The production is given greater cultural weight through the use of West African traditions including griot, an important role in the African community, similar to the European bard. Mary’s story is told through storytelling, song and dance/movement alongside the drummer and performer Angie Amra Anderson.
