A daring and unapologetic examination of religion, pop culture and Black representation.

Who would you rather pray to? Beyoncé or white Jesus?

Jamal grew up Catholic in a Caribbean household, but would rather light a candle and worship celebrities than white saints. Combining African diasporic ritual, music and storytelling, Idol is a spiritual journey that asks what happens when you don’t see yourself represented. Featuring a host of celebrity appearances.

Jamal Gerald is an artist based in Leeds. His work is conversational, socially conscious and a celebration of individuality.

Presented as part of Transform 19, a festival of powerful international performance – 26 April – 4 May 19 - transformfestival.org
