The Gravity

In 2019 I was awarded the Naseem Khan commission for BAME artists from the Lowry, Leicester Curve and Bristol Old Vic for my new debut play The Gravity.

The Gravity is a study of loneliness and despair under neoliberalism, it draws on sci-fi, cinema, dipping in and out of alternate realities as it follows the protagonist's struggle with the world and obsessive thoughts of leaving it.

The piece is still in development, a work in progress was performed for Ferment Fortnight at Bristol Old VIc in February 2020 with Shala Nyx, Joanna Van Kampen and Yannick Budd, and video design by Limbic Cinema.

The work was supported with Arts Council England funding.
