Inspired by Fehinti Balogun’s experiences in environmental activism, Can I Live? is a specially filmed performance prompting an urgent conversation about the lack of representation at the heart of the British climate movement. Balogun (I May Destroy You, Walden) is an actor, writer and activist, and now delivers his energising exploration of where the climate emergency and social justice meet. Using hip-hop, spoken word and theatre, it is a call-to-arms to anyone who may have felt excluded from activism or anyone curious about how to get involved. Telling the personal story of Fehinti’s own journey into climate activism, and featuring a cast of his own family, Can I Live? demystifies activism and empowers the audience, passing them the baton.
