Onyeka Igwe: history is a living weapon in yr hand

From: 13th January 2024 11:00 am

To: 2nd March 2024 3:00 pm

Bonington Gallery

Bonington Gallery, Dryden Street, Nottingham, UK




Bonington Gallery presents a solo exhibition by London based artist Onyeka Igwe, centred around experimental film, A Radical Duet.

The film imagines what happened when two women of different generations, but both part of the post-war independence movement, came together in London to put their fervour and imagination into writing a revolutionary play. The film depicts this process, and envisages what that play would look like, if staged today.

The film will be accompanied by elements of the set design and props from the making of A Radical Duet, taking inspiration from Sylvia Wynter’s ideas on theatrical adaptation. Wynter builds on Brechtian principles of modern epic theatre and advises on how set design can support a theatre to ‘explode [social] fears by bringing them out into the light of day’.
