As British As A Watermelon

Thursday 21th July

Zimbabwean writer and performer mandla rae has a selective memory and is scrambling to piece together a life mostly forgotten in the name of survival.

 

Through the exploration of mandla’s fragmented LGBTQ asylum and childhood migration memories, as british as a watermelon asks powerful questions about belonging, trauma and forgiveness.

Told through an unflinching narrative, weaving poetry and storytelling together with destruction and colourful chaos, you are invited to join mandla’s rise from the dead and reclamation of misplaced power.
