A frank, fun and provocative look at the trials and tribulations of modern life seen through the eyes of a young black woman. Inspired by Racheal’s own experiences, Portrait uses music, poetry and humour to examine identity and role models and challenge cultural stereotypes.
Written and performed by Racheal Ofori. Directed for Edinburgh and UK tour by Kate Hewitt.
Supported by Arts Council England and the Royal Victoria Hall Foundation.
Presented by Antler
It’s spring. The world is blossoming. Phillip’s potted daffodil is dying.
A copywriter at an advertising agency, fading into the background of a pale office wall, he rearranges words until they work. But life isn’t so easily edited.
Phillip doesn’t want to be Phillip. But what if he never really has been? What if Phillip is yet to become Phillip?
And then there’s Person, who isn’t anybody… yet.
Award winning company ANTLER return to RADAR with If I Were Me, a playfully surreal portrayal of the performance of identity.
If I Were Me won the Pulse Suitcase Prize in 2014 and was developed with support from Arts Council England, Old Vic New Voices Lab and New Wolsey Theatre.
