Afri-Co-Lab Presents: The Hero's Journey

Invited Dress Rehearsal

Time & Location

Hastings, John's Place, Bohemia Rd, Hastings TN34 1ET, UK

About the event

The Hero's Journey is an epic tale full of surprises, twists, and turns with a large dash of local seasoning!

This is the point in the show description where we tell you all about the story to excite you to buy a ticket. But we can’t, because the story is yet to be written.

We’re throwing caution to the wind and building this epic adventure story over 14 weeks with local artists, community performers, and professional creatives. We are digging deep into who and what makes a hero, where this call to adventure will lead us, and what we’ll discover along the way that will be the key to revealing the magic of Hastings!

The Hastings Museum and Art Gallery is our stage, and you'll experience this story on the move - outside, inside, and around the building while wearing headphones. Like all good adventures, we don’t know where we will end up, but we have some amazing friends coming along for the ride. It's sure to be epic, joyous, heartfelt, and much more.


This immersive production is created and performed by the Afri-Co-Lab community company, co-directed by Anna Maria Nabirye and Darragh O'Leary, with design led by Hattie Spice and sound design led by Ted Barrow.

  • Commissioned by Home Live Art
  • Supported by Arts Council England & Hastings Museum and Art Gallery
  • Made by the local community
