The Fall From Home, 

POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19, Contact Theatre

( supported by Black Gold Arts  and Commonword)


The Fall From Home is an interdisciplinary exploration of the epistemology of belonging, written and performed by Ruby-Ann Patterson. 

Using spoken word, vocal performance and visual poetry, she interrogates the meaning of lineage and the experience of displacement as a Mixed-Race and (sometimes reluctantly) British Woman. 

Through mapping her heritage and examining critical theory, Ruby-Ann exposes a hybrid way of responding to outdated ideas still lingering in Britains collective ideology.

The Other Side of You,

1st March 2020

(supported by Jerwood Arts)

'The Other Side of You' is a visual poetry exploration which investigates British Mixed-Race identity and the epistemologies of belonging, dissecting themes of memory, ritual, lineage and displacement.

 The Other Side of You is an intertextual visual poetry anthology working to expose a hybrid way of responding to outdated academic theories which attempt to homogenise the Mixed-Race experience. Ruby-Ann is hosting an Open house and discussion.
