Additional Information

In 1981 Winston Rose was killed in police custody. Denzil Forrester was friends with Rose, and this piece is a response to his shocking death. Taking its title from a Reggae George song of the same name, it evokes the atmosphere of the Dub clubs in the 80s, and the police presence that accompanied it. Allison Thompson described it as ‘a collage of multisensorial experiences that mourn the loss of life while also celebrating a culture of resilience’.
