Four women take up their instruments. The recording light switches to on.

Aisha, Yomi, Beth and Opal couldn’t be more different, but they’re all looking for an answer to the same question. Does it lie in Aisha’s childhood? Or in Beth and Opal’s new romance? Who will tell them who they really are?

Soulful live music and spoken word collide in this bold reimagining of Scottish National Poet Jackie Kay’s 1986 masterpiece.  Directed by Lynette Linton (SweatRichard II), Chiaroscuro is a celebration of queer women of colour across generations set to a breathtaking score by Shiloh Coke.
