Black Holes

Seke Chimutengwende and Alexandrina Hemsley

An Afrofuturist history of the universe from the big bang to dreamshout death. Propelling lived experiences onto a cosmic scale, Chimutengwende and Hemsley shapeshift through poetic text and movement. Step into an alternative speculation on how to orbit bodies which carry histories of marginalisation and antiblackness.
‘Hemsley and Chimutengwende are darkness newscasters exposing the black holes in white history… We see and hear repeated choreographic patterns, poetic text and black light’ (
Co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction, The Place and Chisenhale Dance Space. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England. Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019.
