After going out for some Caribbean food, Alix thinks that Lewis should learn how to make a proper Caribbean curry, after all, he is a quarter mixed race, and really should connect more with his roots.
Lewis doesn't see what the big deal is. Their upbringing has been very different; their thought process is very different. Alix thinks too much about…well everything and Lewis just goes with the flow and takes life as it comes.
Using food as a metaphor for the strength in diversity, Mixed Grill explores the beauty of mixing different ingredients, neatly weaving in a journey of culture, integration and friendship. Join Alix and Lewis as they explore the past, the present and the future of what it means to be mixed heritage and how your geographical location can have both a positive and negative impact on your identity.
This production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund and and is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
ABOUT BEYOND FACE
Beyond Face is a new performance company based in Plymouth set up by Theatre Practitioner Alix Harris in October 2014 to champion and support Black and Minortiy Ethnic artists and BME young people.
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.
