Le Gateau Chocolat: Black

Accompanied by Psappha New Music Ensemble.

Featuring a repertoire ranging from Wagner and Purcell to Nina Simone and Whitney Houston, Black is an intimate and confessional portrait of Nigerian singer Le Gateau Chocolat’s life: his hopes, his fears and his battle with depression. This is a new version of the critically acclaimed show re-staged for the festival with an 11-piece orchestra.

Post-show discussions each evening with Rachel Morris, psychotherapist and broadcaster.

Supported by a Wellcome Trust People Award. Developed and produced by In Company Collective. Manchester performances supported by Superbia and Richmond Tea Rooms.

Black was originally commissioned by homotopia and created with funding from Arts Council England and support from

Pink Fringe, Nightingale Theatre and Colchester Arts Centre.

Fri 10 & Sat 11 Feb, 8.30pm. £20 / £15. Over 12s.
