• Decolonising Theatre with Candy Bowers

    A highly immersive workshop based on human to human connection; participants will develop skills of body, voice, expression, storytelling and theatre making. A truly transformative drama workshop that shifts hearts, minds and perspectives.

    “If I didn’t define myself for myself I’d be crunched into other people’s fantasies of me and eaten alive.” Audre Lorde

    Candy Bowers is an experienced speaker, writer, actor, comic, theatre maker and filmmaker. The Artistic Director of Black Honey Company, Candy has pioneered a fierce sub-genre of contemporary performance which earned her the 2018 Geoffrey Milne- Green Room Association Award for outstanding contribution to Independent Theatre. She has trained in classic patriarchal European, English and White American Theatre and traveled the country and the world seeking culturally diverse, feminist practices and intersectional points of view. Her practice, observation and immersion in decolonisation has led her to develop tools and methods to approach theatre.
