Love & Protest
May 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£10
Making their Stratford Circus Arts Centre debut this season is Collective X – a supergroup of musicians, poets and producers.
Conceived by vocalist and composer, Alya Al-Sultani in the aftermath of the 2016 EU referendum, Collective X explores race, identity and the black and minority ethnic experience. Subjects range from the fetishisation of the black body to the honour killing of Banaz Mahmod; from Tinder to sisterhood. Although themes of dispossession and oppression take centre stage, they approach these problems with sass, humour and wit and their irrepressible joy in music-making shines through.
