Greenwich + Docklands International Festival – Black Victorians

Audio described in-house.

This powerful and moving dance performance by Artistic Director and Choreographer Jeanefer Jean-Charles is inspired by nineteenth century studio photographs of black men, women and children. Exploring a complex, but often forgotten black presence in pre-Windrush Britain, this performance calls attention to previously hidden figures and challenges historical and contemporary perceptions.

Presented in the resonant location of the Guildhall Yard, against the backdrop of London’s historic Guildhall, performances of Black Victorians will be accompanied by an outdoor exhibition and presented as part of the City of London Corporation Outdoor Arts Programme, A Thing of Beauty.
