Urielle Klein-Mekongo’s Yvette returns to the Bush Theatre in London this month, with a mix of spoken word and original songs telling the story of a teenage girl.
Evie is thirteen and lives in Neasden with her Mum. She wants to tell us something…. her crush on Lewis, trying to be a woman, Hello Kitty underwear, and her personal battle with body hair. She wants to make us laugh, she’s good at it. She wants to tell us something, but she daren’t let it out.
In a performance that is equal parts hilarious and powerfully moving, the award-winning Urielle Klein-Mekongo mixes spoken word, garage remixes and vibrant original songs to tell the story of a young girl navigating her teens.
Urielle Klein-Mekongo is a writer, theatre-maker, singer/songwriter, and performer. Yvette marks Klein-Mekongo’s first professional outing as a writer/performer.
There will be a post show Q&A following the performance on Tuesday 21st May.
