Panafrik is the annual cultural show produced by UCL’s African-Caribbean Society and this year’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever before.
The theme this year is ‘Reputation’ which focuses on the types of reputations we try to uphold as young men and women in university, how our African and Caribbean heritage comes in to play and how we deal with situations where our reputation needs to be questioned.
The show is centred around a play, which follows the story of a young male and female, who enjoy a summer fling and later find out that they are at the same university. However, at university there are certain roles which they fall into and certain images they must uphold, which becomes problematic not only for their relationship but also for how they view themselves. Thus, making them have to decide whether their reputations are worth it in the end or if their love is more important.
Interwoven throughout the play are different acts, which include modelling, dancing, spoken word and musical performances. Panafrik is not only a showcase of the talent at UCL, but also a celebration of African and Caribbean culture and a great opportunity to collaborate with amazing businesses in and around London that also celebrate our rich cultural heritage.
