On the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, Hoxton Hall is delighted to present their latest production, Chasing Rainbows.
Chasing Rainbows skilfully unveils the story of Ama, driven, accomplished, she’s set to be the first Caribbean woman in space. This striking aerial performance lyrically captures a universal story about the tensions of contemporary motherhood.
Ama is ambitious, resisting conformity determined to make something of her life. 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 she orbits the Earth, she prepares an address for her daughter’s graduation ceremony. Whilst doing so, she considers the loss that taints her success and the cost of “chasing rainbows”.
Inspired by Trinidadian born aerospace engineer, Dr Camille Alleyne, Chasing Rainbows looks at the challenges of balancing a career with motherhood.
