Arcadia | Can I Live? Film Screening, Q&A + Party

April 8 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


Complicité presents Can I Live?

Conceived, written and performed by Fehinti Balogun

Why don’t we talk about it? Fehinti Balogun asks this urgent question and offers an invitation in Can I Live?, a vital new digital performance about the climate catastrophe, sharing his personal journey into the biggest challenge of our times. Weaving his story with spoken word, rap, theatre, animation and the scientific facts, Fehinti charts a course through the fundamental issues underpinning the emergency, identifying the intimate relationship between the environmental crisis & the global struggle for social justice, and sharing how, as a young Black British man, he has found his place in the climate movement.

In the face of a sense of helplessness about the climate catastrophe, Can I Live? is an outstretched hand, inviting audiences to recognise they are not alone – and that through understanding the issues and connecting with the many powerful activists around the globe driving change, we can find a sense of hope for the future.

Followed by Q&A with Fehinti Balogun, eco artist Ian Solomon-Kawall (KMT Freedom Teacher), co-founder of Culture Declares Emergency Kay Michael and Arcadia young artists.

The evening will end with live music and MCs curated by the Hip Hop Garden – bringing together musicians, artists and activists who connect creative expression with nature and social change. Featuring jazz and soul artist Amy True and award-winning Afrofusion Hip Hop Artist MoYah.
