Weaving together poetic text and movement, Alexandrina Hemsley and Seke Chimutengwende come together to retell the history of the universe from the big bang through to the universe’s death.

Speculating on how to be with their bodies that carry histories of marginalisation and anti-blackness, Seke and Alexandrina combine elements of science fiction, and personal narrative to propel the personal and the mythic onto a cosmic scale.

Alexandrina and Seke began working together in 2016. Exploring the potentials and problematics of Afrofuturism shapes their collaboration. They situate their bodies inside shifting and imagined  landscapes, searching for hopeful possibilities amidst the harshness of past and present dystopias.
