We Shall Not Be Moved

We Shall Not Be Moved | Blacknet UK


In 1985, police ended a standoff with #blackliberation group #MOVE by dropping a bomb on their West Philadelphia headquarters, destroying an entire neighbourhood and killing 11 people, five of them children.

32 years later, five teenagers are on the run from their failing school. Taking refuge in a condemned house, they discover their make-shift home sits in the exact location of the #MOVE headquarters. The ghosts of the children killed in the bombing reveal themselves and their story, and the self-defined family of teenagers begin to see their squatting as a point of power and resistance over self-preservation.

An invigorating hybrid of #hiphop #spokenword and #operaWe Shall Not Be Moved is a vital exploration of institutionalised #racism directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winning Bill. T. Jones. Haitian-American composer Daniel Bernard Roumain and librettist Marc Bamuthi Joseph – an arts #activist and spoken word performer –  have created a brooding, often joyful piece filled with place, purpose, and possibility.
