Britain Retold is an ongoing body of work which reveals individual perspectives on British identity and how it is perceived within one of the country’s most international, rapidly changing cities, London – themes closely mirrored in Multitudes.


With the world première of John Hollingworth's Multitudes about to open at the Tricycle.
Theatre, Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham announces that the company will host acclaimed artist Sara Shamsavari’s Britain Retold which previously exhibited at City Hall in 2011 and subsequently at Rich Mix and IITSPIRATION London in 2014.

The exhibition reflects a range of viewpoints from diverse cultural backgrounds, and are brought together to form the series in an aim to create a singular voice. The series consists of intimate portraits that incorporate the symbolism of the Union Jack, which in these contexts presents both positive and negative connotations. The images are juxtaposed with statements, enabling the public to explore and challenge their past and current interpretations of what it is to be British.

Britain Retold seeks to open a platform that allows the multi communities in London to begin redefining what it means to be British, moving toward being wholly inclusive and allowing new associations to exist alongside tradition.

Venue Name: Tricyle Theatre.
