SKINT: Mixed Me Up

Beyond Face Presents SKINT: Mixed Up Me. “Where are you from? Yeah but where are you really from? Are you related to Bob Marley? You’re not black enough to be black, you’re not white enough to be white.”

Mixed Up Me is a semi-autobiographical play about a mixed-heritage girls search for a sense of place growing up in Cornwall. Introducing other ‘mixed people’s’ stories along the way, the piece unearths a history of scientific testing on mixed-heritage children and remembers some forgotten heroes.

Mixed Up Me has previously been performed at the Plymouth Fringe Festival, Theatre Royal Plymouth and The Bike Shed Theatre, Exeter.

Ages 11+ / Booking line: 020 8692 4446  


Beyond Face Theatre

Beyond Face TheatreBeyond Face is a new performance company based in Plymouth set up in 2015 by Theatre Practitioner Alix Harris in October 2014 to champion and support Black and Minority Ethnic artists and BME young people. Alix Harris recognised a need for a company such as Beyond Face to exist in the city of Plymouth but to also have also have in impact on the wider regions and to establish partnerships with theatres outside of the South West.

The company’s work consists of two intertwined strands; a professional BME theatre company and a BME youth company. Both elements will work together to increase the presence and number of BME artists able to develop their performance capability in the city. The aim is to make professional work that is  more visible and encourage BME young people to access arts and culture in the city.

Beyond Face is a supported artist company with the Barbican Theatre, Plymouth and Tamasha Theatre Company in London.
