ABOUT

A semi-autobiographical solo about being a successfully educated black woman within Western society. Oreo Prelude goes back to the beginning of the story, taking the words of British MP Diane Abbott to interrogate systemic racism and its effect on mental health within private and public personas. Oreo Prelude was developed through a commission from In Between Time in collaboration with hÅb/Word of Warning.
