Birmingham Repertory Theatre – BASS Festival Special Offer

A Press Release we can’t be bothered to rewrite, but that might interest you:

Double Bill: Genesis 9:25 and Sex, Lies and History

Saturday 19 June, 7.45pm

Birmingham’s BASS Festival (British Arts and Street Sounds) comes to
The REP this year with an exciting new show inspired by this year’s
BASS Festival theme of DNA.

For one night only in The Door, dub poet/singer/artist Kokumo and
performer/songwriter Khadijatou Doyneh present a double bill of spoken
word and musical performance exploring the themes of identity, history
and culture.

We would like to offer you the chance to get your hands on 2 tickets
for the price of 1 to see Double Bill: Genesis 9:25 and Sex, Lies and
History in The Door this Saturday night!

Birmingham artists Kokumo reflects on his experiences on a recent trip
to Brazil with his work Genesis 9:25.

Using music, dance, poetry and photography this new piece combines the
influence of biblical myths and the experience of Africans and their
descendants. His conclusions provide a common thread uniting the
experience of black people throughout the world

Drawing inspiration from her African roots, Khadijatou and her six
piece ensemble Slo’burn perform Sex, Lies and History. This musical
tale reflects her diverse cultural DNA – a blend of influences from
Africa to South America, the Caribbean to London. Fusing powerful
words, colourful landscapes and visuals with catchy rhythms and
African-Caribbean infused patios this show tells a perceptive,
humorous and savvy story.

Tickets for Double Bill: Genesis 9:25 and Sex Lies and History are
normally £10 each, but with this exclusive offer you can get 2 tickets
for the price of one! To take advantage of this offer visit our

The Punch team and The REP
