To see to hear to feel.

To be seen, to be heard to be felt.

FACEFORWARD is a hybrid piece intended to facilitate the audience to ‘actively’ witness my process of moving from a place of surviving to thriving.

The performance attempts to magnify and expose the reality of needing to have strength as a black british woman, whilst holding the equal realities of exhaustion, sadness and everyday economic struggles within the capitalist paradigm. 


The performance space positions the audience as co-facilitators, whose involvement is instrumental to building a portal through which I free myself from the constrained narratives and subjectivities limiting both my personal and socio-political agency/action.
