JOSETTE BUSHELL-MINGO’s pow­er­ful con­nec­tion to leg­endary artist and ac­tivist Nina Si­mone is cel­e­brated in Nina – A Story About Me And Nina Si­mone, per­formed with an ex­cep­tional live band.

A sear­ing and soul­ful theatre piece in­spired by the life and mu­sic of Nina Si­mone.

Tak­ing in the singer’s po­lit­i­cal acts as part of the Civil Rights Move­ment in 1960s Amer­ica as well as the strug­gles in her per­sonal life, Josette Bushell-Mingo finds a par­al­lel with the per­sist­ing in­equal­ity in to­day’s so­ci­ety, and ques­tions how far we’ve re­ally come.

The show is on Thurs­day, Oc­to­ber 4-5 at 7.30pm.

Cre­ated and per­formed by Yael Karavan and Naomi Sil­man, Pupik (“navel”) is the story of an en­counter be­tween two women, de­scen­dants of gen­er­a­tions of im­mi­grants who have al­ways been for­eign­ers in an­other land.

To­gether they tackle vi­tal ques­tions such as iden­tity, roots, dis­place­ment, bor­ders, and the con­cept of a home.

Pupik looks to un­earth what con­nects us de­spite dif­fer­ences. Tick­ets: £10/£8 con­ces­sions/free for EHU stu­dents with Arts Cen­tre mem­ber­ship
