A black man in a colourful shirt holds up a piece of white paper with a sad face on it. It is a bit blurry but the letter F is visible. There are two other people sitting in front of him, both blurry, but they appear to be smiling.

Somewhere nearby, though, there's a very important meeting going on, with very important people making very important decisions about your lives. But you're not invited... nothing to worry about.  

Created by theatre-maker Rhianna Ilube and BAFTA-winning game-makers Coney, 1884 is an immersive show inspired by the legacy of the 1884 Berlin Conference, an often-overlooked turning point for the African continent and the world.
