Sharon D Clarke, Noma Dumezweni and Clive Rowe are to take part in a live-streamed theatre event in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
Turn Up!, which will take place on July 10, 11 and 12, will include musical performances as well as readings, poetry and speeches live-streamed from Cadogan Hall in London.
Other artists in the line-up include Layton Williams, Kwame Kwei-Armah, Johnnie Fiori, Brenda Edwards, Zaris-Angel Hator, Rachel Adedeji, Aisha Jawando, Norm Lewis, Brittney Johnson, Brandi Chavonne Massey, and Joe Aaron Reid.
Tickets to the live-stream event cost £10 for one evening or £25 for all three nights, with the money raised to be split between charities the Bail Project, the Okra Project, the Black Curriculum and UK Black Pride.
Nicole Raquel Dennis and Ryan Carter are the creative directors of Turn Up!, which has musical direction by Sean Green and associates Ben Burrell and Ian Oakley.
Dennis said: “Turn Up! is something that we’ve needed in London for a long time. Black voices need to be heard and celebrated now and forever. Hopefully this will be the start of many more celebrations to come.”
Carter added: “We’ve seen a much-needed sense of change sweeping across our industry in recent weeks, and with that comes a wave of excitement that real change is coming.
"We’re taking ownership of how our voices are used, and most importantly, who they are used for.
"This is an event with black people leading the creative direction and production of the show. The age of black performers only being invited for their vocal riff or niche casting is over, and I for one couldn’t be more excited about it.”
Turn Up! is produced by Club 11 London in association with Carter, Dennis and William J Connolly.
