Tash is a simple girl. She’s Black. She’s Queer. She’s a woman. But in the world of university and ‘identity politics’, suddenly she’s anything but simple. She’s powerful.

When student union elections roll round, Tash ticks all the boxes to take her to the top. All she needs is the confidence… if only there was a well-known cultural figure that exudes confidence…

I Am [Not] Kanye West by Natasha Brown is a ‘vibrant, powerful and hilarious’ (View from the Outside) solo show that asks, how much of
ourselves are we willing to lose in order to win?
