Now, I See


 

Two brothers reunite to honour their sibling's life at a celebration of remembrance. As they grapple with their loss, they are forced to confront their shared past and long-standing estrangement.  
 

Following the sell-out run of SAMSKARA (The Yard), this brand-new work explores the challenge of forgiving yourself for a lifetime of suppressed emotion, while celebrating the profound bond of brotherhood and the resilience that can be found in joy.  

A powerful fusion of movement, song, and text, Now, I See is an exploration of identity, letting go and nature’s visceral power to heal. 

10th May - 1st June, 2024 - Stratford East

SAMSKara


 

'When I look at you - when you look at me - when our eyes connect? I have to protect. To hold on to something... cause there's too much to feel!'

 

Four generations of black men are trying to understand themselves in a world which tells them they have to be strong. Moving through joy and suffering, laughter and longing, this soul-baring odyssey untangles what it means to be a black man in twenty-first-century Britain.


Samskara premiered at The Yard Theatre in November 2021 and returned for another sell-out run in 2022.
