Description

Decolonising The Archive (DTA)

will be presenting a trilogy at Deptford X Festival 2019


Windrush Time Capsule & African Tales from the Hip (Performed on separate nights,see below);

are a series of Plays, Mono Dramas and Movement married to an art installation and digital archives. These perforamces and visual art are set across the historical context of Africa, Britain & the Caribbean in the past present and future and told from the visceral archive of Lewisham's courageous community and their legacy thereof.

Via an archive fictional play titled Windrush Time Capsule which is based upon the recent Windrush scandal alongside the colourful backdrop of Deptford and New Cross's Migration History and exploring African Folklore & Myths in Contemporary Britain titled African Tales From The Hip, we will explore, be inspired and create a conversation for reconciliation.

Our Book Launch concludes the trilogy on Saturday 26th October with a Keynote speech from Professor Joan Anim Addo.
