Ceci n'est pas Noire (This is not Black)

Alesandra Seutin I Vocab Dance Company

Alesandra is Afropean. She wants you to know that what you see is not always what you get. Ceci n'est pas Noire (This is not Black) narrates the journey of an Afropean woman through dance and physical theatre, spoken word and song. Alesandra plunges us into personal memories of her upbringing through the winding roads of Africa and Europe, investigating the complex experience of identity.

Like the dancer, the expressionistic dancing is a hybrid of urban, African and contemporary. While playing with masks, roles and attitudes through the distinct perspectives of four figures – herself, that of a club girl, Michelle Obama-like politician and dance hall reggae singer – the performer enters the space of the audience. Shifting the mood from amusement to menace, we are kept on the edge of our seats.

Tickets on sale: Friday 3rd Feb
