Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. 20 August 2019. Edinburgh International Festival. Hear Word! cast at Colleen’s Culture Lounge in Leith. Ten of Nigeria’s biggest stars come together to tell stories of domestic violence, overturning the status quo, abuse, disrespect, bravery, sisterhood and joy. Hear Word! is Nigerian pidgin English for ‘Listen and Comply’. In this unflinchingly honest performance, ten of Nigeria’s biggest stars of theatre, film and television come together on stage to tell multi-generational stories of inequality and transformation.
Hear Word! gives an intimate view into the obstacles that Nigerian women face. Stories of domestic violence, of women’s absence from positions of power, of resilience and resistance, of shattering the culture of silence, of overturning the status quo, of abuse, disrespect, bravery, sisterhood and joy.
