Behind the Scenes of ‘you did not break us’

‘you did not break us’ is a play by lanaire aderemi (verse writer) based on women who ‘resist the shackles their hands are legs in’. The short play that took place in the University of Warwick on the 27th and 28th of February as well as the 3rd of March is based on true historical accounts in Nigeria such as anti-colonial feminist protests in the East and South as well as girls’ fight for education in the North.The characters performed their solidarity though dance, collective action and poetry.
