Event Details

Born to Protest aims to highlight black excellence and challenge racial stigma by dismantling presumptions about the black male figure based on intimidation, danger and isolation, revealing instead character traits around fragility, vulnerability and a constant battle to prove oneself.

Originally from the Cameroon, Joseph Toonga, was born and raised in East London where he still lives. He founded Just Us Dance Theatre in 2007 with Ricardo Da Silva and Rudeen February. A major part of the company’s ethos is to inspire, support and nurture others and it has established two mentoring programmes, Lets Shine and New&Notable, to provide tools and opportunies for young emerging hip-hop dance theatre artists.
