love • blackness • joy
Like the Black joy and Black love it explores, LUDALA is has been an ever-evolving project, from;
its initial R&D experience (Oct '20);
a transformation into 3 short films which debuted at Edinburgh Fringe (Aug '21);
and the live outdoor adaptation of one of the film pieces "IS DAT U YH?" at GDIF and Albany (Sep '21)
check out each iteration via these links...

GDIF21 (WOOLWICH) • Albany (DEPTFORD)
...on a trip down that memory lane from Elephant to Peckham, four galdem supply us
with all the vim and nonsense inbetween!
we honour the mixture, marriage fusion
of our tongues in this joyous ode
to waaaaayyy back when;
a surreal celebration of our love of food, expressive mannerisms, and Black Brit millennial identities still glistening with diaspora roots.
