“Can a play from a person like me just be a play already?”

Following its sold-out run at the Bush Theatre, Arinzé Kene’s acclaimed Misty transfers to London’s Trafalgar Studios for six weeks only.

Through a visceral blend of theatre, gig and performance poetry, Arinzé delivers an epic, heartfelt and playful exploration of creative freedom, set against a pulsing vision of modern London.

“Here is the city that we live in

Notice that the city that we live in is alive

Analyse our city and you’ll find that our city even has bodily features

Our city’s organs function like any living creature

Our city is a living creature

And if you’re wise enough, you’ll know not all of us are blood cells…

Some of us are viruses.”

 

Misty is directed by the Bush Theatre’s Omar Elerian (NASSIM, One Cold Dark Night, Islands) and features an original musical score performed live during the show.

 

Arinzé delivers an epic, lyrical journey through the pulsating heart and underground soul of inner city London. An inventive blend of gig theatre, spoken word, live art and direct address, Misty confronts the assumptions and expectations underpinning the act of telling a story.

 

Arinzé Kene is a star in the making, whose accolades as an actor for stage and screen include Girl From The North Country at the Old Vic and One Night In Miami at the Donmar Warehouse. He is best known for BAFTA-nominated film The Pass alongside Russell Tovey (for which he won the prestigious Best Supporting Actor award at the 2016 Evening Standard Film Awards),
