"He unfurls, slow, like a dust flower, except, he is looking at his black shirt. Santana’s footprint: stamped on his chest; perfect stone crystals glinting in the grooves..."

From Fringe First winner Inua Ellams comes a new story about two foster brothers building a global t-shirt brand. On their journey from a market in Nigeria to a sweatshop in China, Matthew and Muhammed discover the consequences of success.

Inua Ellams was born in Nigeria in 1984, and moved to the UK as a teenager. Inua’s work merges visual art, spoken word and theatre, and he is known for his for iconic imagery, beauty and attention to detail. The poet and performer who brought us The 14th Tale and Untitled, performs his new work, Black T-shirt Collection as part of its first national tour.

Commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre. Developed with the support of the Arvon Foundation and the National Theatre. Funded by Arts Council England.
