Interview: Elaine Mitchener talks SWEET TOOTH

06 Mar 2018

Following her successful performances of SWEET TOOTH in Liverpool, London and Southampton, the acclaimed vocalist and movement artist Elaine Mitchener spoke to Gilane Tawadros, the Vice-Chair of the Stuart Hall Foundation, about the SWEET TOOTH  and the process of research that led to this incredibly powerful, thought provoking and much acclaimed performance. 

SWEET TOOTH is an ambitious 50 minute music theatre piece that uses text, improvisation and movement, to stage a dramatic engagement with the brutal realities of slavery revealed by the historical records of the sugar industry, and to reveal its contemporary echoes.
