  7. Malcolm X Elders

We have been making theatre with the Malcolm X Elders Theatre Company for well over a decade, creating many original shows together.

The company’s shows are often made from group members’ own life stories and members of growing up in the Caribbean before moving to Bristol in the 50s and 60s. Stories that they were told in childhood, or happened to them directly, were featured in 2022’s Old Brooms Know The Corners, 2013’s Ticky Picky Boom Boom (which also toured to the International Community Arts Festival in Rotterdam).

They shared with us challenges they faced as they moved to the UK as in 2012’s We Have Overcome, and even explored more recent life experiences as older African Caribbean women in 2010’s Use it or Lose It.
