Thursday 14th October
Presented by One September / Aleasha Chaunte
Part of Unity’s Open Call
This a meal, a ritual and a performance work in progress about what it means to be descended from African slaves. Born out of a desire to live fully, despite a painful history, and a difficult present, Artist Aleasha Chaunte is on a quest to create the perfect ritual to heal this most particular kind of pain.
Aleasha is an artist who believes that art has a place in society. She considers herself a social justice worker and in collaboration with her long-term arts partner she runs One September. Past works include “The Handless Project” a two-year investigation into her favourite fairy tale and what it teaches us about how humans heal.
Out of the Narrow: A Ritual for Black Descendants of Slaves will also be available to view online one month after the live event. It will be available at a Pay What You Can Rate. Find out more here.
