Spoken Movement: Family Honour

From internationally award-winning choreographer Kwame Asafo-Adjei, witness this raw exploration of family and personal trauma. Through a brilliantly unique meeting of hip hop and theatre, Family Honour asks how far one would go to uphold family expectations and whether it’s truly honourable to do so or just another traditional taboo?

A young girl, bound by the demands of tradition, religion and family, confronts her past rebellion against these pressures.

Through a brilliantly unique meeting of hip hop and theatre, Family Honour asks how far one would go to uphold family expectations and whether it’s truly honourable to do so or just another traditional taboo?

From internationally award-winning choreographer Kwame Asafo-Adjei, witness this raw exploration of family and personal trauma, putting you in the front seat for tense, honest confrontations that go generations deep.

Originally a duet, the work won France’s prestigious Danse E´largie in 2018. Now it is expanded as a full-length ensemble production.

“Honour, is sophisticated in its use of hip-hop language for theatrical ends, in a tensely contained dispute that tells of the repression of young women by older religious men” The Guardian
