Her dreadlocks piled high on her head, her arms are raised, elbows out as if she is pushing a great weight down.

The Called – Creative Lab

In April  2018 we worked with writer and poet, Omikemi, on a research and development theatre piece exploring race, disability and medical history. Our team included a remarkable array of talented creatives and BSL interpeters led by our wonderful Director Vici Wreford-Sinnott.

We would like to thank filmmaker Stephen Rudder for a unique collection of photos and video projections.

The piece will be developed into a performance that will form part of our new production next year.
