Jamal Harewood - Portrait (Yarahmadi) The Privileged [part of Camden People's Theatre's Sprint Festival]
The Privileged is a solo participatory performance event that explores race, community and the identity of the working-class citizen within today’s society. Have you ever seen a polar bear in the flesh?
Been close enough to notice just how white these magnificent mammals are? Remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest apex predator, with black skin.
This is a limited capacity work for up to 30 people that places you at the centre of the action.
“What begins apparently playfully becomes an extraordinary charged and disturbing meditation on cultural stereotypes and perceptions and fears relating to the black male... Searing and thoughtful” - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
