Submerge Talks: Jumbie – Toni-Dee Paul

Toni-Dee Paul unwraps some of the key themes in Jamal Gerald’s Jumbie.

Join us after the friday night viewing of Jamal Gerald’s Jumbie for a discussion with Toni-Dee Paul about the work.

Toni-Dee is a theatre maker, collaborator, writer and performance artist based in Manchester. Her current practice explores identity politics, memory and culture using auto-biography as stimulus for her work thus far. Toni has previously been commissioned by Fuel and has toured her mono-dialogue Rum Punch around the North of England; she has also worked with artists such as Andy Smith and Selina Thompson.


This conversation may touch upon topics within Jumbie, which will include elements of sexual content.
