Complicité / Fehinti Balogun - Can I Live?
Conceived, written and performed by Fehinti Balogun
Director Daniel Bailey
Co-Director Simon McBurney
An online filmed performance produced by Complicité in association with the Barbican, London, supported by Oxford Playhouse
Join Fehinti Balogun on a journey into the world of environmental activism, as he tells the story of how, as a young Black British man, his path has been forever changed by what he's learnt about our planet. Using original hip-hop and spoken word, Can I Live? is an energising and uplifting exploration of the place where the climate emergency and social justice meet, and a call-to-arms to anyone curious about what we can do to help.
"I'm going to explain what climate emergency means to us practically - right now - from the perspective of a young Black man living in London. I want us to feel seen. To me it is resistance. It is activism." Fehinti Balogun
Supported by Arts Council England and Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation

We want to make the work as accessible to audiences as possible.
We invite you to consider your decision about what to pay for your experience of Can I Live? as a political decision.
