Kema will be returning to work with Highlights in September, with some very special music making workshops at Shap CE Primary School. Head Teacher Katie Chappell has asked Kema to work with all the children at school, to create their new ‘Anthem’ as part of their Vision and Values Week. Kema will also be meeting children at Bolton Primary School for an afternoon workshop.
Kema will then be working with GCSE Drama students, leading a Theatre Skills workshop at Duchess Community High School in Alnwick, before the students’ trip to Northern Stage to see him perform. Kema is currently performing his original film role of China, in Northern Stage’s production of I, Daniel Blake. The actor, rapper and singer wrote and starred in the critically acclaimed Shine at Live Theatre – a show about his experience of moving to Newcastle aged three which is about to be adapted for a TV musical drama.
I, Daniel Blake will be touring through Autumn 23, read more HERE.
