  • Story Jam: Reel and Unravel - Rough Crossings

    Phil Okwedy and a 30-strong shanty choir with a storm of stories and sea songs.  

    In stories of the passage from life to death, it is seldom plain sailing and often the final destination is not what was bargained for. In stories of empire, the terrifying experience of the passage on the slave ship is known but largely ignored. Imagine, then, a story in which the suffering of that middle passage leads to the triumph of a final return home...


    Now that is a story that needs to be heard.


    Born in Cardiff to a Welsh mother and a Nigerian father, Phil grew up in the wild west of Wales where he still lives and works.


    Hosted by Lucy Lill and Alys Torrance, south London’s popular longstanding storytelling night takes up residence with the Albany across two venues.


    This event takes place at Canada Water Culture Space.
