Yomi Ṣode’s debut collection Manorism explores family, survival, generational trauma and the complexities of belonging – it is an examination of the lives of Black British men and boys.
This 70-minute show reimagines poems from Manorism. Fun, heart-warming, heart-breaking, immersive moments, experimenting with dance, projection and music.
This adaption is written by Yomi Ṣode. Directed by Philip J Morris. Myah Jeffers is the dramaturg and Melo-Zed is the composer. Movement is staged by Kenrick Sandy with visuals by Darryl Daley. Manorism is produced by Natalie Fiawoo.
