Hey TP Family,
We’re almost halfway through what’s been an intense year, to say the least – we hope you’re keeping safe and healthy. Despite our best efforts, it seems like hope is hard to come by at the moment so we’re doing all that we can to keep our young people, creative community and neighbours as positive as possible.
If you’re looking for a reason to cheer, you’re in the right place. Theatre Peckham is proud to stand in solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community in celebrating this year’s Pride Month – in particular, by highlighting the breadth of Black experiences that make up the vibrancy of queer folk in this country.
Earlier in 2020 Theatre Peckham, alongside literary arts organisation BORN::FREE, presented Theodorah Ndlovu’s debut exhibition Many Kinds of Power – an interactive collection of portraits showcasing Black queer people living their best lives in London. Alongside the captivating photography is a pair of ethereal soundscapes produced by Hana Rage that features Theo interviewing her subjects about their experiences in their politicised bodies, adding beautiful and necessary textures to an already stunning photography series.
Theo told us what it meant to her to present Many Kinds of Power at Theatre Peckham. She wrote:
“I was approached to exhibit my ongoing series by Theatre Peckham and this wonderful opportunity could not have arrived at a better time; I had just showcased a selection of my work in a pop-up exhibition a few weeks prior and I was keen on investigating ways in which more people could engage it.
