Who is Miss British? Is she the person wearing the crown or the one wearing the shackles? The person travelling first class or the one being trafficked? Miss British may be a poem; a movement; a song. She may be the mother of three and the sister of one; the lover of many, and the soon-to-be bride. Miss British is everywhere, in everyone. She is a story of servitude and repetition.

Based on an original idea by Sharon Frese, Miss British is a piece that excavates the prejudices and social hierarchies left behind by colonialism across the planet. Combining theatre, dance, and video installation, the piece is a voyage across the oceans of our shared pasts.

An Esplanade Commission and Production

Devised by The Art of Strangers in collaboration with Sharon Frese, Kalaiselvi Grace, Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai, Loo Zihan, Adrian Tan, Chan Silei, Riduan Zalani, and Chloe Chotrani.
