“US” CAST ANNOUNCEMENT 🚨Very excited to be working with the very talented Emily Flo Carter, Hannah Ankrah and Bella Tran @emilyflocarter @itshannssie @chickenwingsandchins_art US “#The Fight” by Priscilla Lafayette Kwabi @bluereignxi
Performed by COUNCIL XI @councilxihq
Direction by Janisè Sadik
Olumide, Grace and Magdalena dream of coming to London to become rich and fend for their families back home. Their ‘family’ and ‘friends’ overseas have spent months in communication with them, the girls are excited about the opportunities awaiting them on the other side of the world. Everything seems perfect.
Layered with soothing chormelodies and movement, US is an emotional, funny and conflicting piece about three young women trafficked into London. They put aside their culture, their race and come together to fight for their freedom. #humantrafficking #modernslavery
