  • Live Theatre Broad Chare Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE1 United Kingdom (map)

The music is always present, you just have to hear it.

What makes us who we are? Do the choices in our lives determine who we become? Are we in control of our own story, or is it in our DNA? 

Kema is three years old when his family move from Zambia to Newcastle’s west end. It’s not easy. It starts with a story of new surroundings, about making a new life, and then watching that life fall apart. About growing up in a world that doesn’t always accept you, but gaining self-belief, trusting your head, your heart and always chasing your dreams. 

Actor, rapper, singer, rising star and Live Theatre Associate Artist Kema Sikazwe (I, Daniel Blake), who performs under the name Kema Kay, makes his powerful stage debut mixing a bittersweet coming of age story with an electrifying live soundtrack and heartfelt words.

Fancy coming to the show or want to bring a group of young people to the show? Please email don@curiousmonkeytheatre.com or call 07984100825.
