‘imaginary natural beings’ is a journey of self-exploration through an indifferent world. The Girl becomes a woman, The Boy becomes a man, and they both shape each other’s lives – or at least, that is how it is supposed to work. Within a fluid, deconstructed theatre space, the boundaries of character and actor become blurred. In a work inspired by contemporary poetry and absurdist theatre, ‘imaginary natural beings’ explores the nature of Blackness, womanhood, and coming-of-age in modern Britain.
The Girl, our Girl, is not alright. But she is trying to be. Let’s see as she does.
Named as one of the 'Top 5 Shows to watch in January' (Black in Britain) and 'Experimental yet entertaining' **** (The Reviews Hub). After a sold out performance at the VAULT Festival, imaginary natural beings returns to the iconic Camden Fringe.
