27 - 28 Nov | Part of NEXT Festival

Marion Burge

We Owe You A Legacy | 7.30pm

A loving tribute and a painful excavation, We Owe You a Legacy is a show about Mothers of women of the African diaspora. Their love and care, their high expectations and scrutiny.

Following the beautifully searching Nebula (NOW 17), Marion returns to The Yard with a show that journeys through the colonial residue of the past to a place of hope.

Drawing on dance, food and sisterhood, We Owe You a Legacy confronts the difficulties of daughterhood and the heritage of motherly love.

Performance Collaborators: Dejonie Langallier, Amanda Oyebusola Ajomale

Tom Halls

Rage Face | 9pm

Rage Face is unstitching body bags and peering into queer interconnectedness and internalised self-loathing.

A microphone, a table, a queer. This isn’t a soapbox, it’s a confession. It actually happened.

Reality and fantasy blur in this intimate confessional of a queer psychopath. Rage Face treads the delicate line between humour and horror in a surprising tale of how the marginalised can be demonised and how, in turn, they can demonise themselves

Dramaturg: Bridget Sweeney
Artistic Consultant: Andrew Westle

About Marion

Marion is a Live artist and performance maker based in London. She makes work that seeks to inspire a shift in the way we understand the communities and emotional space we move through. Her work is visual and challenges the audience to look at identity and heritage with particular emphasis on claiming the performance space as a decolonised environment with potential to exist differently through experimental performance practices.
