Black Victorians Presented By Jeanefer Jean-Charles

Black Victorians Presented By Jeanefer Jean-Charles

Days: Sat & Sun

Showtimes: 1pm and 4pm

"Black Victorians is inspired by Black Chronicles – The Missing Chapter, an ongoing curatorial research programme led by Autograph focused on unearthing nineteenth century photographs of black presences in Britain’s archives. Black Victorians is accompanied by a display of the Black Chronicles’ Exhibition In A Box produced by, and presented in association with, Autograph, London."

 

This powerful dance performance by Artistic Director and Choreographer Jeanefer Jean-Charles is inspired by nineteenth century studio photographs of black men, women, and children. Exploring a complex, but often forgotten black presence in pre-Windrush Britain, this performance calls attention to previously hidden figures and challenges historical and contemporary perceptions. 

 

Black Victorians is produced and co-commissioned by FESTIVAL.ORG, Brighton Festival, Hayfair and Without Walls and is currently touring across the UK.
