THE UPSETTERS make theatre written, directed and performed by artists of colour.
We want to address representation on the stage while being accessible to a diverse audiences.
At the moment, we feel there is an unconscious bias which we want to overcome by creating brand new opportunities for those from under-represented backgrounds to have their work performed. Too often, we hear that the talent isn’t out there. We’re here to prove that wrong. We’re here to show everyone that there are amazing artists of colour who are dying to be seen and heard.
WRITING OUR WAY HOME:
THE UPSETTERS will be collaborating with Free Word to present Home Truths, three monologues by writers of colour responding to WRITING OUR WAY HOME theme.
