fresh and innovative exploration of a Black Woman’s thoughts, fears, and feelings
Using an anarchic blend of storytelling, poetry, dance and music Damilola ‘DK’ Fashola brings her darkly funny play and brutally honest exploration into a black girl writer's perspective of the burdens of modernity. This open mind surgery is a battle of rationale and reason as her thoughts personified take on a disjointed journey of their own, through race, religion and cultural expectation.
Razor sharp switches from direct address, to sketches, through full on dance and poetry. This masterfully crafted combination is steeped in witty word play and playful fearlessness. Expect belly laughs and uncomfortable truths. This new form of storytelling is a genre all on its own - coined by Fashola as ‘Silhouettez’.
