Tickets are going fast what’s set to be an artistic and musical treat coming to Dimbola Museum and Galleries in Freshwater on Sunday 17th June.
The evening features a theatrical performance by visual artist Sunara Begum and world-renowned composer Tunde Jegede, as well as exhibition of the images by Dunstan Perera.
The collaboration examines the how identities evolve by weaving in a rich global narrative driven by our journey to seek out meaning combined with our amazing ability to transform, to re-invent cultures and create new being.
Sunara Begum says,
“I try to define myself in a way that’s unique to me. It is far more complex than colour or one very restricted geographical space. It’s a plurality of tangible and intangible places, peoples and influences over thousands of years.”
