Choices and Voices at The Shaw Theatre

Choices & Voices  is a courageous one woman show written and performed by international spoken word artist and playwright Teju Chosen. Teju blesses London with 60 minutes of wit, wisdom, and her reflections on this wondrous wide world.

Through a display of song, spoken word and cutting edge drama straight from the heart, infused with soulful jazz and urban beats, Teju takes us on a voyage of her own sojourn. This brave, joyous and personal performance will leave you inspired, challenged, moved, laughing and tapping your feet for more.

Teju is the Artistic Director of the Creative Tongues Arts in Education organisation, which brings their own form of  EDUTAINMENT to the young and the young at heart. This motivating woman with vision, has hosted several of  her own shows including Organic Essence, The African Triangle and Up Close and Inspirational. In addition to screen appearances (poetry/acting), and radio interviews/performances, Teju has lit up stages in and around London, in South Africa, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago, Louisiana and many more destinations, far and wide.

She has also spent over three years as Writer in Residence in a London male prison. 

Her writing stems from her own observations, perceptions, feelings, and her own real life experiences. Come and experience a dynamic and interactive evening of enlightenment and fun as Teju tells you about why she writes, who she is, why she is still single, the righteous brotha search, the revolution, difficult choices most of us can relate to, what she’s reppin’, the sick doctor, the cellulite battle and much more.

“Nice to see another sister adding to the common wealth of creativity in this world” Nyame Nhyira Wo

“A Nubian princess who makes a computer screen speaks with eloquence and realistic overtones. Thank you for the moments of pleasure you have given me… Do not stop writing!” Dash

Filskit’s Theatre Company’s Snow White at The Shaw Theatre

Combining a unique blend of playful ensemble based performance and micro projections, Filskit Theatre Company present a modern and visually stunning twist on this traditional fairytale. With a well known story, combined with Filskit’s own theatre practice, audiences will be immersed in the world of Snow White, created through technology, movement and music.

Filskit are an all female theatre company committed to creating work that ignites the imagination of adults and children alike. They met whilst studying at Rose Bruford College, and were brought together over a shared love of projection and theatre. Since 2008, they have been using micro projection with a dash of light, a sprinkle of movement, a dusting of shadow with some original music thrown into the mix – culminating in their own special ‘Filskit’ blend of show. 

Filskit Theatre presents a loveable adaptation of this well-known children’s tale… inventive and imaginative, utilising projection to engage children and adults alike….Filskit Theatre certainly promises to become an innovative children’s theatre maker. A Younger Theatre

It’s very encouraging to see young actors founding their own company and creating some truly original, fine quality work…Filskit Theatre Company – one to watch The Stage
