Event type: All Ages
Esie Mensah and Raechele Lovell – two artists who honour the voices that live within them and find themselves intrigued with seeing beyond their capacities. Drawing on their heritage, experiences and what it means to be an artist today, this mentor and mentee collaboration asks the question, “what does it mean to heal through intentional movement?”
Mensah and Lovell collaborate for the first time on this special project for IMPACT 23. This new work of dance theatre explores the themes of joy and celebration in Afro-diasporic bodies. This piece is a celebration of life and the joy that comes with it, exploring the different ways that people celebrate, from traditional cultural celebrations to modern-day parties and festivals. In a devised process of artistic collaboration and mentorship, Esie Mensah and Raechele Lovell come together to create in the spirit of building a bolder future for our industry.
It is time to find and relish in joy.
This show takes place outdoors.
