An afrofuturist history of the universe
- Black Holes 2018
Dance artists Seke Chimutengwende and Alexandrina Hemsley began working together in 2016 on their multi-stranded project Black Holes. Exploring the potentials and problematics of Afrofuturism shapes their collaboration and the pair chat, dance, write and hold different spaces around embodied, speculative fiction(s). They situate their bodies inside shifting and imagined landscapes, searching for hopeful possibilities amidst the harshness of past and present dystopias. Their Black holes project includes a new dance work (entitled Black Holes), a workshop series Unfunky UFO and public events we fly and we are made.
Black Holes is Co-Commissioned by Cambridge Junction, The Place and Chisenhale Dance Space. Supported initially by a 2016 Seed Commission for BAME artists from Camden People’s Theatre and supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Additional support from Trinity Laban and Greenwich Dance.
