Annice Boparai, 2017 graduate and audition panel member, will reprise her role in Yasmin Joseph’s award-winning J’Ouvert as part of Sonia Friedman Productions’ RE:EMERGE Season in May 2021.
‘Carnival is here. The streets of Notting Hill are alive with history and amidst the soca, sequins, and endless feathers, Jade and Nadine are fighting for space in a world that should be theirs. A timely echo of Caribbean resistance across centuries, J’OUVERT is a joyful and fearless story of two best friends, battling to preserve tradition in a society where women’s bodies are frequently under threat.’
The production will also be filmed as part of the BBC’s Lights Up programme – available on BBC4 and BBC iPlayer this spring.
