What is it?
Female artists of colour will be in the spotlight for the fifth annual Calm Down Dear Festival, which will take place at the Camden People’s Theatre in London.
This year’s festival will be headlined by Racheal Ofori’s So Many Reasons, produced by Fuel. So Many Reasons is an exploration of motherhood and generational divides told through the eyes of a British Ghanaian woman; which asks what happens when we realise mums don’t know best.
Festival highlights will include Vanessa Kisuule’s SEXY, exploring the fraught relationship we have with our bodies, and scratch performances from Caroline Horton and Libby Liburd. Expect sci-fi feminist epics, a darkly comic look at what it means to be alive, and a one-woman show about the crap that women face every day.
