Inscribed in “Me” is a project that is centred on developing Alethia’s solo work-in-progress that speaks of personal, historical & collective trauma.
Utilising movement & song, the work uses autoethnographic narratives to explore trauma in connection with race, gender & identity and self-authoring alongside developing current research into a full-length work, and adapting it for outdoors & digital formats. Facilitated through workshops and other public events engaging with Black Womxn, in London, Leeds and Nottingham.
