SHADOWS IN DIFFERENT SHADES

Shadows in Different Shades, by Oladipo Agboluaje. The project is being produced by and was conceived by Moji Kareem and will feature Ayo-Dele Edwards. Francisco Rodriguez is providing design consultation, the lighting design is by Howard Hudson, Rob Hart is designing visual media and sound, and Karin Fisher-Potisk is movement director. The sharing is at Theatre in The Mill, University of Bradford, Off Shearbridge Road, Bradford BD7 1NX on Friday 2nd June 2017 at 14.00.

Shadows in Different Shades is a one woman show inspired by true accounts. Caught in patterns perpetuated by her mother, a woman struggles to save her daughter, and herself, from the cycle of guilt, recrimination, and abuse that curse her family. The piece depicts how traumatic experience affects the lives and relationships of generations of women. Currently in its first phase of development, Shadow in Different Shades is a compelling and provocative tale of dreams and broken promises, of hope, optimism and resilience in the face of harrowing circumstances. The piece is interdisciplinary, blending cinema, song, movement, and text to portray the lives of three women in a fragmented, many-layered fable. It explores migratory identity as it examines how its characters are shaped by Nigeria and England.
