Phenomenal Woman

What better way to end the season than on Maya Angelou – poet, performer, activist and wordwitch! With special guest Kudzanayi Chiwawa we look at Maya’s childhood, her revolutionary writing and her influence on women everywhere.

We can’t wait to celebrate this multifaceted powerhouse of talent with you, sharing readings of her poems and autobiography and praising her like we should!

Did you know?

In 2011 Maya spoke out in opposition to a paraphrase of a quotation by King that appeared on a memorial, saying, “The quote makes Dr. Martin Luther King look like an arrogant twit”

Maya totally redefined the concept of the autobiography, with her 7 volumes about her life starting with “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings”

Follow this link for one of the most seemingly unlike collaborations of all time; Maya Angelou, Jessica Mitford and Bernard Cribbins!


About Salon de la Vie

Hosted by Scary Little Girls’ Rebecca Mordan, Salon de la Vie is a series of fortnightly 15 – 20 minute extravaganzas of songs, storytelling, merriment and conversation, focusing each time on an awe-inspiring, remarkable and brave human from the world of film, music, literature and history, drawing parallels with the achievements of activists today, to celebrate how people positively embody the change they want to see in the world, for themselves and for others. And we’re super proud that each salon has a custom illustration provided by the wonderful Jacky Fleming.

Come along every other Wednesday evening to join in with our singing, celebration and joy!

We’d like to thank our amazing funders Arts Council England for supporting this project
