Windows Of Displacement at Crucible Studio
Windows of Displacement, choreographed and performed by Akeim Toussaint Buck is an autobiographically sourced solo blending dance, song and spoken word to explore personal narratives, ancestral memory and the shifting and increasingly urgent politics surrounding the movement of people.
Using his own experience of being a Jamaican born citizen now a citizen in the UK as starting point, while further exploring both historical as well as current political and socio-economic references.
Toussaint draws on the contexts of imperialism, colonialism and displacement to create a story of the past, present and future of humanity. Prepare to be taken on a journey galvanising people power and reclaiming our collective responsibility.
