Dave Neita’s Uplift is a creative live performance paying tribute to the Windrush Generation in the UK. It evokes sentiments of belonging, home and dignity as a response to the hostile environment that resulted in the Windrush Scandal.
Uplift is a fitting tribute to the incredible and indomitable spirit of the people who were invited from afar to help to rebuild post-war Britain and responded to that call with generous open arms, steadfast service and love for the nation, presented as their motherland.
The performance involves the interaction between the artist and a discarded helium tank, which has been reclaimed, adorned and set in flight. The resultant artwork ultimately celebrates the significant contribution made by the Windrush Generation to life in the UK.
This event will take place live at Omnibus Theatre.
