  4. Alesandra Seutin is a dance artist based in London, born in Zimbabwe and brought up in Belgium. Her new work "This is not Black" explores her identity using dance, theatre, vocals, spoken word and song.

    This short documentary about her was made by filmmaker Anton Califano who has previously collaborated on dance for camera projects with Alesandra.

    THE WORK
    ‘Ceci n’est pas Noire’/ ’This is not Black’
    ‘Ceci n’est pas Noire’ is a mélange of dance, theatre, spoken word and song. It is the journey of a mix-raced woman down memory lane, a winding road between Europe and Africa. As perceptions of her change from place to place, she plays with masks, roles, attitudes, and highlights the idea that what you see is not always what you get!
