Following the great success of the first event of its kind, Ovalhouse presents the second #CONNECT: Black Women in Theatre, a night designed to celebrate the contribution of black women in British theatre. This FREE event takes place on Wednesday 6 March from 6pm at Ovalhouse, 52-54 Kennington Oval, London SE11 5SW.
#CONNECT: Black Women in Theatre will be presented in the run up to International Women’s Day on 8 March and will be hosted by Ovalhouse Executive Producer, Stella Kanu and Learning and Participation Manager, Titi Dawudu; the event will be curated by award winning Playwright and Professor Winsome Pinnock. Taking inspiration from Desert Island Discs, Winsome Pinnock will ask her chosen guests – what are the things that nurture them? There will also be an exploration of self-care, inter-generational compassion and sharing the secrets to staying ‘well’. This will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with Karena Johnson (Artistic Director, Hoxton Hall), Actor Seraphina Beh (EastEnders BBC 1, Wolves Theatre Royal Stratford East, Leave Taking at Bush Theatre) and Director Ola Ince (The Convert Young Vic, Poet in da Corner Royal Court Theatre).
