“Bangles” tells the impactful story of Theresa, a young British born Nigerian film maker, still haunted by memories of her abusive, now deceased father.
Despite her best efforts, she is unable to convey the depth of her pain to her stern mother Gbemi and her cocky, confident brother, David.
However, as her family attempts to approach her father’s memorial with a veneer of normalcy and familial tensions arise, Theresa and her family are compelled to confront a devastating past in a way which changes their lives forever. In this moving and sometimes humorous play, the question we pose to our audience is: after being enslaved by the past for so long, is freedom EVER possible?
Exploring timeless themes of reality, perception, abuse and restoration and combining powerful live theatre with searing, unusual film footage, “Bangles” is an immersive and unique multimedia production. Theresa uses the mediums of film and poetry to cope with painful memories and express her inner turmoil, to poignant effect.
