About Benji Reid
Benji Reid’s vision as Performer and Creative Director has made him an Award Winning and senior contributor to the Black Physical Theatre canon over the last 30 years. He has produced and performed over 30 works for international cultural institutions led by The National Theatre, Birmingham Rep, PS122 (New York) and Sydney Opera House. Merging his performance success with photography, Reid began producing images in 2012. Reid considers himself a Choreo-Photolist; a practice where theatricality, choreography and photography meet in a single or series of images. His photography is a means to set up hyperrealities, conversations and to curate curiosities. Reid wants to move his generation - a hip-hop generation to take a road less travelled. So, within his virtual walls, we find reviews, archives, new works and even works-in-progress. They have a singular aim which is to inform the audience, about that which has informed and inspired him to action. Whether it is about an outsider, failed familial relationships, or suicide, he wants the audience to be a part of the process and the product.
At MIF23, Benji Reids presents his new work Find Your Eyes.
