Back in 2005 The Shrine worked on a multi-media music theatre production titled iDream of Accra with The Long Blonde ‘Fro, which was toured across the UK.
Africa attacks all the senses – an unparalleled cacophony of sounds, smells, colours and feelings from a continent with a rich, magnificent history and deep rooted culture.
iDream of Accra captures this frenzied spirit in an epic multi-media poem featuring African and European musicians, poets, storytellers, DJs rappers and visual artists, including Tunde Jegede and his string quartet, MC poet B.R.I.E.S. and Kelly Budge from Your Mum. It was conceived by Rita Ray & Max Reinhardt, with story and poetry created by Patrick Neate.
