Dismantle Systems of Oppression


“It’s been a journey. We’ve been moving at the speed of light. We just did it.” Leah Thomas sits across a google hangout, dialling into our call from America’s west coast. Speaking with a relaxed and confident ease, Thomas has a crisp, singular mission to dismantle structural racism and white supremacy from within the environmentalism movement.

Architecture of Olfactory


Everyone has their first memories of Chanel N°5. It’s a scent you almost hear of first, whispered and revered. The ultimate aspiration; sexy, undone, glamour in the most heady sense of that word. And then there’s the first electrifying memory of a family member, lover or friend – it’s never yourself who wears it first. But you know the scent, you don’t have to ask.

Ola Ince, punching through the gloss

Ola Ince greets me at the Royal Court stage entrance in a camo tracksuit, taking time from the final week of rehearsals for Poet in Da Corner – a show that’s returning to the stage after an acclaimed run in 2018. If her outfit hints at a need for military-like efficiency as the clock runs down to the curtain going up, director Ola doesn’t show any signs of stress. As I follow her along the stall aisles and into the wings she’s relaxed, confident and warm. A combination that will no doubt continue to serve her well as she moves from a recent run of Appropriate at the Donmar Warehouse, to finishing Poet in Da Corner, then onto directing Romeo and Juliet at The Globe in April, and then back to Royal Court for Is God Is by Aleshea Harris in July.
