WE OWE YOU A LEGACY- THE YARD THEATRE. 27, 28 November

The latest piece in a series of Heritage and Diasporic investigation. We Owe You a Legacy is a meditation and interrogation of the presence of the mother as a key figure in the discourse surrounding decolonisation. A loving tribute and painful excavation of the root of expectation that comes from the mother and how it affects the way generations of women attempt to navigate their lives in in a world foreign to their mothers. The piece follows the colonial root of capital success and morality through to present day and how recreating maternal inheritances can radically brush off the residue of colonialism, allowing space for unbridled joy and consolidated identity in sisterhood and ritual
