Two Islands and Two women - 50 years apart
"MATILDA is my Grandma.
She migrated from Jamaica to England in 1962. Now all of her memories have faded. I need to remember for her, for me, for us," says Ria Hartley about her solo show.
The performance artist combines elements of spoken word, dubpoetry, live art and reggae music to tell the story of one woman’s journey from Jamaica to England through the eyes of her granddaughter in Matilda and Me.
In this politically charged story of two islands and two women 50 years apart, a woman makes a decision that will change the course of her family's future.
Five decades later this performance explores the consequences across three generations.
Matilda and Me was previewed at Salisbury Arts Centre as part of Practice in November 2013, and was very well-received by the audience.
Hartley returns to the centre with the full show (suitable for ages 16+) on Wednesday.
