Big Feast ’22: Black Victorians

Big Feast ’22: Black Victorians

by Jeanefer Jean-Charles & Associates

This powerful dance performance by Artistic Director and Choreographer Jeanefer Jean-Charles MBE is inspired by nineteenth century studio photographs of black men, women and children.

 Exploring a complex, but often forgotten black presence in pre-Windrush Britain, this performance calls attention to previously hidden figures and challenges historical and contemporary perceptions.

Black Victorians is produced and co-commissioned by FESTIVAL.ORG, Brighton Festival, Hat Fair and Without Walls and is currently touring across the UK.


Fri 26 Aug:
