Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
The theoretical body through which this practice is located is framed through a critical definition of ‘Utopia’, in an attempt to mobilise how the narrative of coloured identity could be explored in the realm of theatrical performance. I explore the politics of naming and its impact both from an intrinsic and extrinsic perspective in relation to a personal identity narrative. This production attempts to disrupt normative ideological and cultural constraints and investigate the performance of coloured identity through the use of individual and collective memory. I did this through a devising process that consisted of broadly two stages: The first was to conduct interviews with people who self-identify as coloured and video the conversations. The second stage saw the recordings as source material which a cast of four devised from. The intention of the production was to create a space where the audience would bear witness to an attempted re-imagining of a coloured identity narrative.
