Sancho's Dances [Hampton] POSTPONED
Sunday 29 October 2023
19:00 to 21:00
We have had difficulties in running this event in Hampton, but are negotiating with other venues to run this exciting collaboration.
Ignatius Sancho [c.1729 - 1780] made an astonishing journey from his origins as a slave to becoming a celebrated man of letters and a humanitarian in London - and the first identifiable man of African origin to vote in a Westminster election. He also published dances [with choreography], and we will be performing some of these in the 18th.-century Temple to Shakespeare built by the celebrated actor David Garrick, one of Sancho's acquaintances.
This event will be the first in a series engaging with Black History Month.
