A celebration of Black performance that aims to change the face of theatre, presented in partnership with Contact.
One woman’s life-long love for Billie Holiday’s music, for the stars, and for her lost baby brother. Who Wants To Live Forever? is about camping holidays and friendship; about learning how to sing so that you can sing to the stars; about loss and memory, and turning memory into myths of Amazon princesses sailing the skies. About falling stars, and why we all love them.
Developed as a Divergency micro-commission with support from hÅb, Commonword + STUN. Supported through the Black Gold Arts Festival, Arts Council England and an Artist Residency at Lawrence Batley Theatre Cellar.
