Jade Anouka’s (His Dark Materials, BBC; Cleaning Up, ITV) critically acclaimed hit production HEART will finally be returning home to South London, where it all began for Jade.

A story told by proud black LGBTQ+ women, HEART goes beyond Anouka’s identity to present – above everything else – a universal tale exploring the human experience.

The show lyrically explores Jade’s own experiences as she journeys through an entirely new chapter of her life, which has her reflecting on the hurdles she already faces in the industry and in society as a black woman and her fears of additionally battling for acceptance for her sexuality. In an honest and captivating piece that presents vulnerability and hope, we’d love to have an interview arranged that delves into these experiences and how they have developed her artistry.

NEED TO KNOW: Heart plays at Brixton House from 23 Jan to 3 Feb 2024. See listing /book tickets
