#Ending the Silence

Saturday, February 24, 2018 - 7:30pm
Old Fire Station, Oxford, OX1 2AQ

Where are our heroes, history makers and change-makers? Why are so many not recognised in our history books or halls of fame? Ending the Silence is a protest-for-change style of theatre exploring the black diaspora experience and the struggles for justice, equality and human rights. It fuses theatre, dance, song and performance poetry to create a strong visual and emotional performance.

The evening starts at 7pm with drumming in the bar. The show begins at 7.30pm, and is in three sections.  At 9pm there will be an after-show DJ set in the bar.

Ending the Silence will kick-start a year of remembrance and celebration around the 70th anniversary of the arrival of the Empire Windrush from the West Indies at Tilbury docks in 1948, and with it the first large group of post-war immigration into Britain.

Unlock the Chains Collective produces work that gives opportunities to Black Artists to create work that explore their experience, culture and identity and this production also contributes to the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

“So original and thought-provoking”

“…the sheer purpose that doesn’t/won’t allow it to be just another black voice of protest”
