Contains descriptions and depictions of racial violence. Racist language and slurs.

“Being black is about fighting a white world. It’s about surviving. It’s about thriving.”
Blackness is written in our history as a ‘spectacle’, Hear Me Now shows blackness as art itself. Emphasised by the black chorus, lived London experiences of stereotypes, prejudices and racism play out on the stage grounded in art and spoken word poetry. A creative and community-driven new piece of work from debut playwright, Mya Onwugbonu.

Enter the gallery, surround yourself with art and witness stories that are rarely told and shared, but seem all too familiar to some. At the end of the performance, take your chance to take to the stage, say ‘Hear Me Now’ and be heard.

It’s the London Life. Where black is defined. It’s the London Life. Stories of youth in strife. It’s the London Life. Blackness is on the rise.
