When you have two left feet, seeing someone tell as intricate a story as the one found in Kwame Asafo-Adjei’s award winning performance Family Honour is spellbinding and mind-boggling. It was originally performed as a duet to critical acclaim, winning the prestigious Danse Élargie in 2018. Now, it will be shown in an expanded form across the country to spread its provocative question, how far would you go to uphold your family values?

On Saturday 10th September Dance City plays host to the Spoken Movement company, who blend contemporary dance styles with a range of musical genres to push the boundaries of hip-hop theatre. Company leader Kwame Asafo-Adjei infuses his lived experiences as a dance artist with a Ghanian background into his work to share with his audience his perspectives on social tensions that make up the day-to-day for so many. Family Honour is confrontational and thought-provoking, but ultimately might be only 60 minutes out of your day should you seek it out. Remember that what this show represents, while entertainment for some, is the reality for many.

Family Honour is performed at Dance City, Newcastle on Saturday 10th September.
