Synopsis


"Here is the city that we live in

Notice that the city that we live in is alive

Analyse our city and you'll find that our city even has bodily features

Our city's organs function like any living creature

Our city is a living creature

And if you're wise enough, you'll know not all of us are blood cells …

Some of us are viruses."


Arinzé delivers an epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner city London.


An inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, Misty confronts the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story.
