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.
