‘I’d had enough so I killed him.’
A dance/physical theatre solo inspired by the life of poet and writer Maya Angelou,
a woman who fought her life as an activist and feminist for black women.
A search for being, seeing and wanting to be seen.
A search for identity, security and strength.
A search for confession, for conviction, for judgement.
Washing all the dirt off to get to the core, to make it visible.
‘I forgive you and I forgive myself.’
