ALRIGHT PETAL?

A sunflower, a lily or a rose? Which flower do you see yourself as? Flowers are beautiful, they come in different shapes and sizes. We appreciate their beauty just simply for what they are. It’s time we all did the same for black women.

 

Alright Petal? was created in August 2019 by Alix Harris and the Beyond Ensemble. Written in collaboration with emerging writer Monique Day and including monologues by established writers Cairo Aibangee, Titiola Dawudu and Melissa Saint. The set was created by Exeter based Botanical Artist Bee Watson of Wild Hive Designs. 

 

In a world of feminist discussion, let’s make sure all voices are heard.
