Onyeka Igwe presents a discursive event rehearsing new futures through radical theatre.

A Radical Duet (2023) imagines the 1940s London meeting of two anti-colonialist women who channel the revolutionary impulse of the time into writing a play.

Following the screening, we are invited to take part in a communal reading and discussion of Maskarade (1973), a play by the Caribbean theorist, playwright, novelist and intellectual Sylvia Wynter whose work was vital to its development – and its proposition that storytelling is essential to imagining the world otherwise.
