Following her five-star solo show WHITE, Koko Brown now brings the world premiere of GREY, the second instalment of her Colour Trilogy, to Ovalhouse this summer. This autobiographical new show candidly explores depression and challenges the taboos which so often obscure black women’s mental health. But, this is not a production about suffering from depression, this is a show about living with it.
GREY is written in Koko’s inimitable lyrically powerful blend of spoken word and vocal looping, the show also stars Sapphire Joy (Imogen, Shakespeare’s Globe; Casualty, BBC). Working with movement director, Shelley Maxwell, it is also fully British Sign Language integrated and this has been made creatively and theatrically integral to the performance.
Performance Dates: Thursday 27th June – Saturday 13th July 2019, 7.30pm
Location: Ovalhouse, 52-54 Kennington Oval, London SE11 5SW
Box Office: Tickets are £16 with £10 concessions from www.ovalhouse.com and 020 7582 7680.
