Stories of Africans Living in Newham is an online musical theatre event created by IROKO Theatre Company.
Africans have a strong heritage in Newham, they have brought energy and vibrancy to the borough. We will share our research with you, share some stories of inspiring Africans and finally we will share our communal viewing of ‘Afro Gyration in Stratford’ .
This musical theatre performance is inspired by Stories of Africans Living in Newham. We will enjoy a dynamic, celebratory choreopoem inspired by IROKO’s findings.
Following the performance there will be an interactive, informative Q&A with Alex Oma-Pius (Artistic Director, IROKO), Juwon Ogungbe (Composer and Performer), Lizzie Abiola (Performer), Patrick Ideh (Founder and Proprietor of Bantuway Limited, Project Participant) and Sheriff Jamah a.k.a ‘Big C’ (Founder of Interface Gambia & Youth Club, Project Participant).
