Can I Live?Conceived, written and performed by Fehinti Balogun
Join Fehinti Balogun on a journey into the world of environmental activism, as he tells the story of how, as a young Black British man, his path has been forever changed by what he’s learnt about our planet.
Using original hip-hop and spoken word, Can I Live? is an energising and uplifting exploration of the place where the climate emergency and social justice meet, and a call-to-arms to anyone curious about what we can do to help.
A filmed performance by the world-renowned theatre company, Complicité. Created through Complicité’s ‘Developed With’ programme; supporting the next generation of theatre makers.
A Complicité production in association with the Barbican, London, supported by Oxford Playhouse
the most influential and consistently interesting theatre company working in Britain
a company who are incapable of remaining within known theatrical boundaries
Fehinti Balogun delivers a performance of such warmth and kindness that he wins the arguments just by his presence.
