Theatre gives me the space to dISCOVER, explore and interrogate The live art of human Nature.
Theatre Bio //
It’s hard to describe how, when or why I because a theatre artist. I know I started playing mas in Caribbean Carnival at age 6 then started going to drama club from age 9… I think this is where the seeds got planted. The group was called KCK ‘Kreative Culture Kids’ in East London. Set up to the dedicated empowerment of children from the African Diaspora. My first experiences with KCK went from being scared of saying my name out loud to singing ‘I’m Black and I’m proud and I will say it allowed’, to making up our own lyrics, street dance classes, storytelling and making a medium scale community plays. Notably, ‘Caribbean Rush’: the story of the Windrush. These early experiences taught me so much about who I am, and why I am here. It connected me to myself. And at that age, it was detrimental to laying the foundations and approach I still have inside of me now… to be proud and have ownership of everything I am and everything that I can be.
