Ade is Artist in Residence with The Pinter Centre for Performance and Creative Writing at Goldsmiths College, University of London. She’s taking part in the Centre’s three-year AHRC-funded research project, ‘Beyond the Linear Narrative: Fractured Narratives in Writing and Performance in the Post-Colonial Era.’
This research project has been exploring the links between inter-cultural and political change and the emergence, or re-emergence, of non-linear and fractured narrative, particularly in post-colonial and diasporic contexts, including British-African diasporic writing, theatre and performance.
A new work by Ade will form part of the project’s third and culminating annual conference, ‘RECONFIGURATIONS: Remaking Narrative, Reinventing Genre in Postcolonial and Diasporic Writing and Performance,’ from 10 – 12th November 2011.
Along with academic papers, the conference will include play-readings, performed poetry and full theatrical performances, plus workshops with students and local cultural and community groups.
