About the Show/Event
Information for She is a Place Called Home at The Vaults, Inner London (Play). She Is A Place Called Home, tells the story of two sisters in the run up to their Dad's wedding as they grapple with his decision to get another wife, all the while rehearsing the traditional Nigerian dance he's asked them to perform. Set against the backdrop of a family in crisis, this unique exploration of British Nigerian sisterhood shines a light on what it means to exist in the space between two worlds - the tradeoffs you must make, the lies you must tell and the contradictions you must somehow make peace with. It highlights the power imbalances cultural traditions create within families and what those without power must do to survive. Debuting ahead of International Women's Day, She Is A Place Called Home, is ultimately a tale about sisters as they confront what their Dad's decision means for their faith, their family and their future.
