Prices from: £20.00
A man and a woman stand leaning in over a metal table that divides them, pressing their foreheads together, faces anguished, backs tense. Hard metal chairs are pushed back on either side of the table. They wear everyday clothes, loose shirts and trousers.

A young girl, bound by the demands of tradition, religion and family, confronts her past rebellion against these pressures.

Through a brilliantly unique meeting of hip hop and theatre, Family Honour asks how far one would go to uphold family expectations and whether it’s truly honourable to do so or just another traditional taboo?

From internationally award-winning choreographer Kwame Asafo-Adjei, witness this raw exploration of family and personal trauma, putting you in the front seat for tense, honest confrontations that go generations deep.

Originally a duet, the work won France’s prestigious Danse Élargie in 2018. Now it is expanded for the Sadler’s Wells stage as a full-length ensemble production.

A cassette tape lies on an orange surface. It’s labelled ZOONATION MIXTAPE. A tangle of shiny brown tape pulled from the cassette has been formed into the outline of a cartoon figure with spiky hair, hands raised, fingers spread and eyes wide.
