Slate North West Artists Showcase - Manchester, Fri 29 Nov

HOME, Manchester
Fri 29 Nov
4 - 7.30pm

Join Slate at HOME for an evening of performance, film and music by the very best Black* artists in the region.

Expect a weird drag tribute to Twin Peaks, a monologue on Remembrance Day and family by one of Britain’s most versatile actors, stand-up about being a mixed-race Wakefield lass with plenty of Yorkshire profanity, the true story of Islam’s first woman Sultan told through puppetry, the importance of one man’s dreadlocks, comedy about race and Brexit, and poetry from Afshan D’souza Lodhi’s brand new collection, re: desire.

We will present a series of short performances, a film, live music, and DJ RebeccaNeverBecky, followed by speeches and networking.

Visual artists Padma Rao and Ashley Karrell will be exhibiting their work until Fri 6 Dec. 

The full line-up includes: Eva Serration, Jane Steele, Afshan D'souza Lodhi, Ashleigh Nugent, Sean Cernow, Lewis Charlesworth and more. Sabina Shah will also be screening a rough-cut of Sultanate, with live musical accompaniment by Amin Bay.
