Presented by Koko Brown
Koko is a strong, independent, black woman. She has a roof over her head. She has food in her fridge. She lives a good life. She’s also a little bit sad, a lot of the time. She doesn’t understand why.
Following her debut solo show, WHITE, Koko Brown brings you the second installment of the Colour Trilogy, GREY. A candid show exploring depression and black women’s mental health. Blending spoken word and vocal looping, GREY is fully British Sign Language integrated and contains sensitive content.
Join in the conversation #GREYplay.
Originally commissioned by Ovalhouse theatre. Supported by Arts Council England.
Praise for previous work
“Brown blends lyrical styles using live vocal mixing. She throws down punchy slam poetry then smoothly moves to soaring vocals. […] Brown makes you laugh, but then she makes you hold that laughter up to the light for closer scrutiny.” – The Stage, on WHITE
