ẸRÍ (Testimony)


Part of Ventnor Fringe Festival 2018

Vfringe logo 2018

This is your first chance to see Tunde Jegede perform his new piece, ẸRÍ, which is a tale of home and heritage. Inspired by his parents’ birthplaces, ẸRÍ (Yoruba for ‘testimony’) weaves together stories that span both Britain and Nigeria to create a surreal world of myth and memory.

To create this very personal work, Jegede joins forces with the multimedia visual artist, Sunara Begum to bring together a theatrical rendition of their combined journeys as seekers of truth within the metropolis of their fragile existence. ẸRÍ is an intimate and intricate coming together of music, movement and text in a tale of what it means to be displaced in the modern world. Showcasing at Ventnor Fringe Festival for the first time, this is a special landmark performance that will go on to tour Europe, India and Africa in 2019.
