HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A POLAR BEAR IN THE FLESH? BEEN CLOSE ENOUGH TO NOTICE JUST HOW WHITE THESE MAGNIFICENT MAMMALS ARE?

Remove your shoes, coats and bags, as you are about to encounter the Arctic’s whitest apex predator, with black skin. This is a 50 person capacity performance that places you at the centre of the action. Each performance is followed by an invitation to join a free ranging conversation exploring issues raised during the work.


Jamal Harewood creates temporary communities through participatory events. He believes that these events should be a playful experience for everyone. His performances focus on ideas of identity and race within the community.
