Love Island with Bolu Babalola

Live Screening
Sold out

On 30 July, the Bush Theatre will be screening the Love Island final, challenging the assumption, dictated by inherited power structures, that theatre is a place of ‘high culture’ that can only reach new audiences by adapting traditional forms. In the spirit of a truly public building, we have chosen to program along the lines of appeal and demand, recognising what will be one of the most significant cultural moments on 2018.

The event will begin with a relaxed one hour discussion on this series, facilitated by Bolu Babalola, examining what has been a highly problematic series in terms of race, gender and age politics. We will provide a safe space for audience members to discuss the impact of the series on them, including an examination of the practical mechanisms we often employ to enjoy a TV program that by its very nature excludes or disempowers people that look like us.

Following this hour-long discussion, we will go straight into a viewing on the final.

New Years Day 2014. It’s a few minutes after midnight. I’m in a cool bar in Berlin. I don’t feel cool enough to be in any bar in Berlin let alone this one. I’m 27 years old. I’ve not had a full-length play on. I’m single. I’m working a collection of part-time jobs. I’m letting…
