Jumbie by Jamal Gerald for Transform 21-22. Image credit The Other Richard 3.JPG

Dance for healing. Dance for freedom. Dance for desire. An interdisciplinary performance created by a Black queer ensemble, JUMBIE is a ritual for our sickened times.

 

Rooted in the history and culture of Montserrat, the Jumbie dance calls on the spirits of the dead to cure illness, solve personal problems, and redress social injustice. A night of feasting and music in which anything might happen - suppressed and silenced by colonial forces and the Christian Church.

 

JUMBIE revives the traditional dance but from a contemporary queer perspective, and raises a middle finger to the Church and colonialism by simply existing. Led by provocative and playful artist Jamal Gerald and an ensemble who invite you to a night of sensual revelry. Part ritual, part sex club, part dance party – and fully WTF.

 

Tickets for the 17th-19th of March at CLAY 

 

Commissioned by Transform and HOME Manchester. Co-produced by Transform and supported by Arts Council England, Leeds Playhouse and Theatre in the Mill. Recipient of a Jerwood Arts’ Live Work Fund Award in 2021.

We are working to keep everyone as safe as possible as we transition back to live events. In order to do this we have some continued rules around infection control and we ask that you familiarise yourself with them before coming to an event.

Like many other small and independent spaces we have found ourselves in a very difficult situation as the continuation of our work relies on audience attendance. If you’re in a position to support our not for profit objectives, you can become a CLAY MAKER or alternatively choose your donation on our membership section. 
 

We’re delighted to say that we’ve been awarded a Cultural Recovery Grant in the 2nd round funded by DCMS delivered by Arts Council England. We’re grateful to be able to stay open for our studio holders and transition back into live practice & excited to still be #hereforculture


We hope you’re all staying safe and healthy!
