Black Sheep

Livia Kojo Alour belts out a song that fizzles with energy” – Broadway Baby

Powerfully combines personal memoir, poetry, performance and song”  The Scotsman

Fusing physical theatre, spoken word & song Black Sheep is the story of a queer Black woman finding love, after retiring from her full-time job as sword swallower. The story is taking the audience on a journey from overcoming institutional racism to leaning into radical vulnerability.

After moving from Germany to London over ten years ago to live and work in a more diverse community, Livia learned that life-long feelings of self-hatred and otherness are part internalised racism and part survival techniques. With a successful career under her stage name MisSa but tiring of playing someone else full-time, Black Sheep has been long in the making, serving as a candid autobiographical work and a euphoric reclamation of Livia’s identity and ongoing fortitude.
