Arinola Theatre Company with UCD Observer
We Dance is a theatrical exploration of black womanhood and femininity.
What does that even mean? Who does femininity exclude and in doing so leave unseen, unheard.
What would you say if you went through your whole life saying nothing?
What do you do when no one will even acknowledge your existence?
Do we scream or cry. It is easy to cry but sometimes it is better to laugh. Sometimes it’s better to dance.
