Shaniqua Benjamin / Love Warrior

What’s the point of a beating heart if not to feel?

What happens when love doesn’t take you to your happy place?

Love Warrior is an immersive piece of spoken word theatre, further developing a short performance that was originally part of Apples & Snakes immersive show, Rallying Cry in 2018, and then a scratch in Croydonites 2022.

This one-woman show asks you to get comfortable sitting in the uncomfortable that comes with love, change and challenging perceptions.

Are the lines between good and bad as clear cut as you think?

Trigger warning: references of violence and some themes audiences may find distressing.

Soundtracked by a score created and composed by Simon Manyonda with additional production by Owain Kelly (NO CEREMONY///) , Blessed experiments with the 90s transportation of Garage Music on mixtapes and puts it on stage to tell a blast from the past story that all started outside The Black Sheep…
