Toussaint to Move presents

Windows of Displacement

Windows of Displacement, choreographed and performed by Akeim Toussaint Buck is an autobiographically sourced solo; blending dance, song and spoken word to explore personal narratives, ancestral memory and the shifting (and increasingly urgent) politics surrounding the movement of people.

Using his experience of being born in Jamaica and now residing in the UK as starting point, Akeim Toussaint Buck explores both historical as well as current political and socio-economic references.

Drawing on the contexts of imperialism, colonialism and displacement to create a captivating story of the past, present and future of humanity, Windows of Displacement takes its audiences on a journey galvanising people power and reclaiming our collective responsibility.

“A breath-taking and powerful exploration of personal identity through the mediums of dance, spoken word, song, and physical theatre… I urge anyone to see this .” – Mancunion
