ALESANDRA SEUTIN | VOCAB DANCE performing ‘Ceci n’est pas Noire!’ (This is not Black!) THIS Wednesday 19 October in UK at University of Surrey – Ivy Arts Centre, Guilford GU2 7XH.
‘Ceci n’est pas Noire!’ (This is not Black!) is dance, theatre, spoken word and song by Alesandra Seutin with live music by Ayanna Witter-Johnson. This is not Black is the journey of a mixed-raced woman down memory lane, a winding road between Europe and Africa. As perceptions of her change from place to place, she plays with masks, roles and attitudes, highlighting the idea that what you see is not always what you get.
Vocab Dance is renowned for its multidisciplinary and outspoken works, creating distinctly Afro-European dance theatre. A post-show Q&A session with Artistic Director Alesandra Seutin and Dramaturge Funmi Adewole takes place after this performance.
