Zil’oKA next performance on the 13th of October in Peckham!

Coming Soon!

We are delighted to invite you to the event: Performing Black Bodies, which is going to take place at the Peckham Multiplex on the 13th of October as part of the festivities around the Black History Month. The event is being organised by Ms. Sylviane Rano of the Images of Black Women Film Festival and Mr. Tony Warner from the Black History Walks. It is composed of short films with a Q&A session animated by Dr. Lez Henry (social Anthropologist) and Ms. Shantelle George (Phd candidate in African History) followed by a presentation on dance, stereotypes and the notion of the vulgar.

We feel very proud as one of our members, Nathalie Montlouis, is organising this presentation. She will be analysing the “vulgar” in contemporary African-Caribbean dances and explain how Gwoka can be regarded as a means to restore self- esteem. We are of course going to be part of her demonstration and we will also be performing at the end of the event.

This is definitely an event not to be missed and we are excited to be part of it. Let’s recapitulate:
