There’s a swarm coming…
Many would agree that we live in a racially diverse time with increased ethnic tolerance and cultural acceptance. There are now more mixed race families in existence than ever before. America has had a black president. And no one dares to compete with the “Queen-B” (Beyoncé). But can symbols of progressive racial equality inherently mean we have achieved real racial sensitivity?
Brother Insect explores what it means to navigate space invisibly, whilst being visibly black.
Embodying the character of an extra-terrestrial who is ‘straight up bugging’ on a planet haunted by shadowy ancestors and infested with privileged pests, Brother Insect spins a delicate web that is both stupidly playful and forebodingly dangerous, asking questions like: Is it possible to encourage liberation without poking the entire hive?
…Don’t get stung!
Brother Insect is presented in collaboration with New Queers on The Block, the Marlborough Theatre’s new touring and artist development initiative. It is also supported by Arts Council England, Camden People's Theatre and New Writing South.
