"An exciting, emotional rollercoaster that you don't want to get off of"

I AM HISTORY

Tue 21 Jan - Sat 1 Feb '20 

“Many of the hard-hitting quickfire scenes are discomforting and demand serious thought, while others are incredibly funny”

"One of the best explorations of the interaction between race, gender, storytelling, physical theatre, and poetry I have seen"

One Fragment wants her vagina back.
Another laments at humanity.
A fourth questions the script itself.
The others are running away from NFs in Bermondsey

 

After all you couldn’t be black, tryna steal meat from the stew pot whilst refreshing your timeline, going church on sunday and planning 3somes fantasies (we’re talking 2 men, 1 woman in the same week guys) ...right?

In this age, all it takes is 280 characters to decide if you are woke or cancelled. A roller coaster experience of plays within a play exposing societal glitches and anomalies. Each story playing out how WHO YOU ARE is expressed, policed, and politicised in popular culture #triggered #whacky  
An ensemble piece of witty word play steeped in shade and satire. Birthed in an anarchic blend of music, storytelling and razor sharp switches from direct address, to full on dance and poetry.

Based on true events. Trigger warnings: includes references to abortion and trauma. Explicit language.

"Fragments of a Complicated Mind is unapologetically raw, unpacking endemic issues surrounding black identity with significant thought."
