Dr Michael McMillan is a London based writer, dramatist, artist, curator and scholar of Vincentian migrant heritage. His plays and performance pieces have been produced by the Royal Court Theatre, Channel 4, BBC Radio 4 Drama, and across the UK. Since the 1990s Michael’s practice has taken a more interdisciplinary approach using devised performance, installation and mixed media in a collaborative context. He has made a number of installations on the theme of black hair including (2013) The ‘Origins of the Afro Comb’ at the University of Cambridge Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology and will bring these interests and practices to designing the set for Racheal’ Ofori’s new play ‘Detangled’. In the 2015 exhibition ‘No Colour Bar’ Michael made an interactive installation in conjunction with sound and visual specialists Dubmorphology, that recreated the iconic Walter Rodney Bookshop that existed in Ealing from 1975-1990.
