New release Borealis 2020
“They will remember that we were sold, but not that we were strong.
They will remember that we were bought but not that we were brave.”
– William Prescott, 1937 (former slave).
We are proud to present SWEET TOOTH a dramatic music theatre work by vocalist and movement artist Elaine Mitchener as a new addition to the Borealis 2020 programme. Growing up in East London with Jamaican ancestry, in SWEET TOOTH Elaine uses her personal history to shed light on our collective, ugly history of selling and buying human beings for profit and prosperity.
