Presented By Initiative.dkf


Part of Healing Together

11 September

Duration: 20 minutes

What to Expect: Make some noise


Award-winning arts platform Initiative.dkf return to GDIF with their piece IS DAT U YH? as part of their Ludala Collection, exploring joy through the commemoration of (British) Blackness.

On a trip down the memory lane of a South East London high street, we honour this marriage, this fusion of our tongues, with the mandem, the galdem and the nonsense in between! IDUY is the joyous ode to waaaaayyy back when; a surreal celebration of our love of food, expressive mannerisms, and Black Brit millennial identities still glistening with diaspora roots.

Sorry, this event has already happened!
