‘We – the universe – come up for air from the dank cavern of non-existence” – Black Holes, 2018
Weaving together poetic text and movement, Alexandrina Hemsley and Seke Chimutengwende come together to retell the history of the universe, from the big bang through to the universe’s death.
Speculating on how to be, with their bodies that carry histories of marginalisation and anti-blackness, Seke and Alexandrina combine elements of Science Fiction, and personal narrative to propel the personal and the mythic onto a cosmic scale.
The performance will be followed by a Q&A, hosted by Dance Artist Jennie Hale (Community Dance Artist at MDI and Dance Artist with taciturn).
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.
This event takes place at Unity Theatre, 1 Hope Place, Liverpool L1 9BG, where tickets will be ready for collection on the night.
