The annual Black Achievement Month, showcasing the extraordinary talents of people with African roots opens on October 1st with Find Your Eyes. In this unique show, pioneer of hip-hop theatre turned award-winning photographer, Benji Reid mixes Afro-futurist imagery with hard-hitting tales from his life and adventures. The show brings dancers and photography into the fold to create images in real-time in front of the audience.
