14 July, Black Cultural Archives | October/November 2017, Tour of Islington venues & Camden People's Theatre as part of The Shape of Things to Come
A new play exploring the relationships between black girls and older black women, made and performed by teenage girls from Company Three and the director Maa-Yarkor Addo.
This fun, brave and loving play is our attempt to unpick what ‘Aunty’ really means. To find her in all her complexities and truths. To have the conversations we never have.
Aunty is being developed through scratch performances to audiences of older black women in Islington and beyond.
Created and performed by Aaliyah Murrian, Cherie Duah, Kadiesat Turay, Shadanay McKoy, Angel Oridota, with Itricia Byer and Elizabeth Uter
Created with Gracia Kayindo, Kiki Bowen and Syntyche Tongomo.
Angie Peña Arenas, Joy Addo, Natalie Pryce, Parksinor Addo, Rianna Jade Parker & Xana
Special thanks to all the women who we have spoken to in the making of this piece.
