I AM NOT WHO I SAY I AM

A tale of survival, love, strength & growth

This show is part of the Platform Festival. Explore the full season & find out more here!
 


Olamide Ajoke has never had an easy life, from an abusive father who wants sons, to her struggle with her sexuality.

Told through poetry, music, dance and narration we journey through her childhood until the death of her father.

But is everything that it seems? Or was her father murdered? And by who? With the news reporting on his death 24/7, Olamide has to get her story straight before she ends up being the police's number one suspect.

A tale of survival, love, strength and growth.

This story is a celebration of life and tells us no matter how bad things get, we must be here to be here.

But seriously, who killed Olamide's father?
