Sean Graham’s Foreign Bodies Orchestra (FBO) fuses dance, drama and spoken word to create accessibly extraordinary theatre of the socially provocative kind.
The springboard for its creativity is intellectual but the resulting work is fully accessible and engaging for both the general public and the seasoned theatre goer.
We believe in the power of people coming together, sharing views and building social bridges. We facilitate this action by addressing political and cultural issues along with the insidious and socially divisive effects they have on our everyday life. The Orchestra ensure its reflection of its audience and wider society by working with artists who have a genuine connection to the social, cultural or political issues being addressed.
The FBO name derived from Sean Graham’s journey as an artist and creative practitioner, who has encountered and embraced a wide variety of cultures, dance and spoken word genres.
We believe that, from the social, political and human identity aspect of our lives, we are all foreigners striving to make such places our home. This never ending journey is part of an essential and fascinating human facet that must be embraced and explored.
I would like to thank Breakin' Convention, the Association of Dance of the African Diaspora (DAD), We Move, Haringey Sixth Form, East London Dance and TALAWA Theatre Company for all the support they have given my work and the development of FBO.
I would also like to thank the Arts Council England for their contributed R&D funding which was of tremendous assistance in launching our path in early 2015.
FBO Creative Director, Sean D Graham.
