Josephine Baker. The little girl from Missouri who became an original 20th Century icon. Dancer, actor, activist, campaigner, spy and mother to the multicultural Rainbow Tribe, Josephine broke the mould and high-kicked the pieces to the kerb.
But, almost 50 years after her death, Café Josephine, a down-at-heel New York diner dedicated to her memory, faces closure. Nobody remembers Josephine, who she was, what she did, what she stood for.
CURVE COMMUNITY DAY
Sat 12 Feb, 11am – 3pm • FOYER • FREE
Something extraordinary is happening.
Experience Curve through the imagination of local children. Ash Field Academy and Mellor Community Primary School join forces with artist Siân Watson to takeover Curve as part of The Spark Festival 2022 promising excitement and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy together.
Ordinary things take on a whole new dimension and it’s completely FREE. Keep an eye on the website for exciting updates and activities for the takeover day
With a sultry, Harlem Renaissance-inspired score, spring-heeled Charleston dancing and a hatful of historical figures, Josephine blurs the real with the imagined as we follow one woman’s incredible journey from the slums of St Louis via the bright lights of Paris and into the hearts of the world.
