Theater Festival

Internationally renowned filmmakers, fashion practitioners, visual artists and DJs the Nest Collective collaborated with activists and artists in London and Cape Town, from their home in Nairobi, Kenya, to create this series of brief, evocative documentaries. The anthology of voices, collectively titled as The Feminine and the Foreign, offers intimate portraits of people who have pushed back against the forces that oppress and violate minority communities worldwide, with a focus on feminist, queer and migrant rights. The Nest interviewed Black activists in London, exploring the intersection of ideas and action between local and pan-African experience, and sought to understand how different generations of Black Londoners relate to London as their home, asking how young activists can develop their practice in a public arena unforgiving of mistakes.
