On Day One, Renato and his Choreographic Assistant Elsabet Yonas, met with the group of 11 women from Tottenham to start exploring the intervention of the ‘Queen of Gospel’ Mahalia Jackson, that led to Martin Luther King’s iconic ‘I have a dream’ speech as we know it. During the week they will look at how the American civil rights movement relates to the dreams of various contemporary communities in Tottenham today, using their own artistic practices to express their own stories.
