Authentic African Journey: EAPS – New Home

Embark on a transcendent journey with ‘An Evening of African Poetry and Storytelling’ (EAPS) – New Home. Inspired by traditional story circles, the backdrop of vibrant African fabrics celebrates authentic storytelling and the richness of diverse communities. Like the Circle, EAPS has no beginning or end, embracing migration, identity, and cultural resilience. This powerful experience fuses spoken word, rap, singing, and live acoustic music, guided by the wisdom of a central narrator. 

Following their debut season as part of The Blue Room Theatre – Summer Nights festival, The Outsiders invite you into a metaphysical Circle where migration, identity, and community converge, creating an immersive experience that transcends time and space.
