Our new Artistic Director Keisha Thompson teams up with Contact Young Company to direct their Autumn show!

Inspired by the Halo Code,  a campaign fighting for the protection and celebration of Black hair and hairstyles, Halo explores young people’s experiences in schools and workplaces in regards to their hair. 

About The Halo Code

The Halo Code is a campaign pledge, signed by schools and businesses, that promises members of the Black community that they have the “freedom and security to wear all afro-hairstyles without restriction or judgment”. This includes any child who wishes to wear their hair however they choose to in school.

Edwina Omokaro, co-Founder of the Halo Collective said, “No one should have to change their natural or protective hairstyle in order to thrive. Together, we will ensure that all Black people can learn, work, and live free from hair discrimination.”
