Presented by Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage
Commissioned by Serendipity Institute for Black Arts and Heritage, composed by Philip
Herbert with two independent choreographic interpretations by Monique Jonas and Thomas Tawala Prestø, Siren Calls: To an Illusive Journey seeks to honour the Windrush generation and crystallise their experiences. The film showcases behind the scenes footage on the making of the shows, including interviews with the producer,
composer, choreographers and musicians.
Interpretation – Siren Calls: To an Illusive Journey is a unique look into a multifaceted creative practice. A voice of hope, aspiration and dreams that generations still have to navigate.
A discussion – A Wise Monkey Knows Which Tree to Climb: Perspectives on Decolonising Black Dance will be held after the film has been shared with Artistic Director of Tabanka Dance Ensemble, Thomas Tawala Prestø and Artistic Director and
CEO of Serendipity, Pawlet Brookes MBE.
The discussion will then be followed by a Q&A session.
