Nina – a story about me and Nina Simone

Josette Bushell-Mingo’s powerful connection to legendary artist and activist Nina Simone, performed with a live band. A searing and soulful theatre piece inspired by the life and music of Nina Simone. Taking in the singer’s political acts as part of the Civil Rights Movement in 1960s America as well as the struggles in her personal life, Josette Bushell-Mingo finds a parallel with the persisting inequality in today’s society, and questions how far we’ve really come. Versions of some of Nina Simone’s best-loved songs combine with a clear provocation in a production directed by Dritëro Kasapi, with dramaturgy by Christina Anderson.
