IROKO Theatre Company is delighted to announce that it has received a National Lottery grant for an exciting heritage project, ‘Speaking without Voice’, based in Newham, London. Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players awarded by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the research project will focus on a variety of Nigerian precolonial nonverbal communication systems, their British-Nigerian historical context, modern usage, and especially how young British-Nigerians are using the heritage to underpin their cultural identity.
Come and find out more about the “strange language” that the British colonial administration could not decode, plus how young British-Nigerians are using the heritage to underpin their cultural identity. It promises to be a fascinating insight into an aspect of Nigerian-British heritage that is little-known. Demonstrations, hands-on experience, plus refreshments, provided!
IROKO are looking to recruit Volunteer Researchers and General Project Volunteers.
