Can I Live?

7.30pm Mon 1—Fri 12 Nov 2021 Theatre online

“Fehinti Balogun stars in this groundbreaking filmed performance that combines stunning visuals, hip-hop and spoken word to chart his journey as a Black British man into environmental activism.”

“Created with world-renowned theatre company ComplicitéCan I Live? is the story of how, as a part of the Global Majority, actor Fehinti Balogun‘s path has been forever changed by what he’s learnt about our planet. This energising and uplifting film is an exploration of the place where the climate emergency and social justice meet, and a call-to-action to anyone who is curious about what we can do to help.”

Filmed on the Barbican stage, London, during lockdown. Directed by Daniel Bailey and co-directed by Complicité’s artistic director Simon McBurney.
