More Information: A Question of Black Physical Theatre
Over the past 30 years Black Physical Theatre has been delivered through the vision and politics of some of the world’s most interesting theatre makers, such as Denise Wong, Amani Napthali, and Benji Reid. Whilst many of these archives have been chronicled there has been very little documented about what one might call the engineering behind the art form, namely the energies and ideas motivating works in the Black Theatre canon such as ‘Ragamuffin’ and ‘Super Heroes’.
– Is there a distinctive art form that is sufficiently unique and nuanced to be called Black Physical Theatre?
– What are its processes and products?
– Who are its champions and challengers?
A Question of Black Physical Theatre brings together a creative team led by Benji Reid and Sustained Theatre Up North (STUN) to offer a selection of opportunities.
