For the past 8 weeks, #OHPInspire have been proud to partner with KarmaBank, a Kensington-based CIC, in providing a safe creative space for women of the diaspora to come together and share their stories. Using opera as a conduit, we have explored what it means to meet new people in new ways in our new project, ‘Passage’.
Our sessions at The Mosaic Rooms allowed everyone to become immersed in the strength, compassion, and humility of these women. With a focus on food, we have come together to learn, heal, and nourish each other, with participants bringing home-prepared meals to share with everyone each week. Through singing together, we have captured the stories of these women, and to share in their space has been a privilege.
‘Passage’ comes to its conclusion in a short film, to be premiered on Sat 25th June at OHP. Led by director TD Moyo, singer April Koyejo-Audiger, and filmed by Maya Sanbar and her team, with support from a diversity of creatives, this film will be a celebration of our work, and our new friendships.
