Misty

1 Male, 0 Female

Arinze Kene Price: $16.95

"Our city is a living creature
And if you’re wise enough,
You’ll know not all of us are blood cells…
Some of us are viruses"

This cutting edge One-Man Show explores race and culture as it leads us on an epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner-city London

An inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, it confronts the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story

Misty premiered at the Bush Theatre, London, 2018

REVIEWS

'Brilliantly conceived ... an articulate critique of humanity's internal intolerances, as the audience is entangled into a two-hour reflection on their own preconceived perceptions of others' ~ Broadway World

'The hot topics of race and cultural stereotyping fizz and dart about this lively and innovative piece of work … surely destined to be a big popular hit' ~ Evening Standard

'Kene has a poetic gift and a powerful presence … his form of performance poetry is at its most vivid in his vision of modern London with its loft extensions, pavement traffic jams and yummy mummies creating “pramageddon”' ~ Guardian

"Inventive, subversive, slightly surreal … it’s bracing to see the question of who gets to tell stories – and how they might be circumscribed – tackled head-on here, with wit, exuberance and visual flair' ~ Time Out

"Pulsing and potent … at once a polemic, an essay and a poem'" ~ The Stage

"Cuts to the heart of a pressing cultural debate … as fiercely thought as it is elegantly structured" ~ WhatsOnStage

"Witty, hard-hitting … a powerful meditation on how we tell stories and a raw, beautiful Odyssey through the heart of London" ~ The Arts Desk
