Performing Blackness challenges stereotypical responses to race, referencing Blackface - a theatre form used to portray black characters in American theatre productions before the civil rights movement.
Adopting a performative strategy, Nyariri investigates the origins and consequences of such judgements within the context of social history and personal experiences.
