One toilet attendant. Two sets of toilets. One night. Worlds apart. Experience the story of a Nigerian nightclub toilet attendant, working in the toilets of a fictional club based on the Shimmy Club in Glasgow. Her conflicted journey is spliced with flashbacks to the toilets of the Shrine nightclub in Lagos, Nigeria, where we see her younger self dreams of becoming a dancer in the revolutionary band of the late Nigerian musician, Fela Kuti.
Bringing to life the Afrobeat scene of the 90s, contemporary club scenes and the hidden spaces within, this dynamic new work by Adura Onashile reflects on two different societies at two points in time.
