Northern Noir is a theatrical show exploring Femininity, Masculinity and Blackness through spoken word, dance, film and live music. Through five acts Northern Noir challenges societal conditioning, connects with one’s history and unpacks the status quo. It gives the audience an opportunity to dive into a world of equality and liberation within all genders, colour, sexual orientation, ability and age.
Directed by GCF Ambassador, Omari Swanston-Jeffers, and created by Maria Dakova, Omari Swanston-Jeffers and GCF Creative Associate Artist, Ashley Karrell. During the show, four performers and four musicians take you on a journey through five different spaces: Old Noir, Masculinity, Blackness, Femininity and New Noir.
