For this edition of the Wish List, British-Barbadian saxophonist, clarinettist and band leader Shabaka Hutchings was invited to fill the Friday evening programme. We start the evening with a solo concert by Shabaka and end it with the documentary Minding the Gap, directed by Bing Liu. Before his solo concert, Hutchings will discuss his thoughts on the deeper meaning behind the album Your Queen is A Reptile.


20:30 - 21:00 : Solo clarinet performance by Shabaka Hutchings

21:00 - 21:30: Q & A about the album Your Queen is A Reptile

This album is a provocative, anti-establishment critique of the blind idolatry received by the British monarchy and a call to deconstruct old myths and replace them with more relevant ones. In this case, that means honouring the significant contributions made by women of colour throughout history, which are often hidden or overlooked. The talk will be hosted and moderated by Reine Elisabeth Nkiambote.

21:30 - 23:00: Minding the Gap, directed by Bing Liu

Three young men bond together to escape volatile families in their Rust Belt hometown. As they face adult responsibilities, unexpected revelations threaten their decade-long friendship.
