COLOUR TRILOGY

COLOUR TRILOGY

WHITE (Currently touring)

 

What are you when you are always the other?

 

A solo show about identity, being a mixed-race black woman and always feeling like an outsider. Blending live vocal looping and spoken word, WHITE carefully considers the concept of mixed-race privilege, tries to connect clashing cultures and explores what it means to grow up mixed in contemporary Britain.

Combining ‘clever and engaging’ original songs, vocal looping and ‘deliciously current’ dialogue, Koko honestly and openly explores race in this ‘incredibly vital’ contemporary piece of new writing.

GREY (Currently in development)

 

She is a strong, independent, black woman.

She has a roof over her head. She has food in her fridge. She lives a good life.

She’s also a little bit sad, a lot of the time.

She doesn’t understand why.

 

Following her debut solo show, WHITE, Koko Brown brings you the second installment of the Colour Trilogy, GREY. A candid show exploring depression and black women’s mental health. Blending spoken word and vocal looping, GREY is fully British Sign Language integrated and contains sensitive content.
