Coat by Yomi Sode
‘I don’t know my grandparents names, how embarrassing is that. But I can name all of Kanye’s albums.’
Picture this: Nigeria. A grandmother passes. London a son cooks a pot of stew for his mother hoping to uncover hidden stories and unanswered questions.
‘Home is no stranger you are an African man and you have responsibilities as the eldest grandchild.’
Yomi Sode’s sell-out show tackles immigration identity and displacement. COAT is a humorous and moving response to the mistakes made by elders that leave the next generation uncertain of what is expected of them.
Info: Coat is at The Albany from 25 to 26 Oct 2018 | Book tickets
