A Hoxton Hall commission, Chasing Rainbows skilfully unveils the story of Ama, driven, accomplished and set to be the first Caribbean woman in space. The striking aerial performance lyrically captures a universal story about the tensions of contemporary motherhood.
Ama has been an overachiever her entire life, resisting conformity determined to make something of herself. However, instead of being considered an inspiration to other little girls with big dreams, Ama is condemned as a ruthless career woman who abandoned her child in order to pursue her career goals.
As Ama prepares her graduation address, she ponders the loss that taints her success and the cost of ‘chasing rainbows’.
Written by Oneness Sankara, commission and produced by Hoxton Hall’s Artistic Director, Karena Johnson, and originally performed as The Immigrant in our 2018 Female Parts season of shorts, Chasing Rainbows has been developed into a full length theatre piece following an overwhelming feedback.
