Performance and discussion: Harold Offeh

Harold Offeh is one of 22 artists selected for inclusion in ‘The Cambridge Show’.

Harold Offeh’s Reading the Realness is a spoken-word performance based around a conversation that occurred on the American talk show The Real involving activist Rachel Dolezal. Dolezal came to public attention when she was controversially ‘outed’ for being trans-racial and living as an African-American woman. Offeh’s performance adopts the form of a script reading workshop featuring participants from a range of backgrounds.

After the performance Offeh will host an open discussion via video-link to explore some of the themes arising from Reading the Realness.
