Black T Shirt Collection

“Black T-Shirt Collection is a fluent, intense 70-minute confection and a tinglingly resonant celebration of the art of solo performance.”

Evening Standard
"He unfurls, slow, like a dust flower, except, he is looking at his black shirt. Santana’s footprint: stamped on his chest; perfect stone crystals glinting in the grooves..."
 
From Fringe First winner Inua Ellams comes a new story about two foster brothers building a global t-shirt brand. On their journey from a market in Nigeria to a sweatshop in China, Matthew and Muhammed discover the consequences of success.

Inua Ellams was born in Nigeria in 1984, and moved to the UK as a teenager. He merges visual art, poetry and theatre, telling stories with iconic imagery, humour and beauty. He writes about his upbringing, the experience of immigration, and of living in the UK today, bringing words to life with pace, rhythm, cadence and intonation. The poet and performer who brought us The 14th Tale and Untitled, performs his new work, Black T-shirt Collection straight from the National Theatre.
 
Commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre. Developed with the support of the Arvon Foundation and the National Theatre.
