A frank, fun, and provocative look at the trials and tribulations of modern life as seen through the eyes of a young black woman. Inspired by Racheal’s own experiences, Portrait used music, poetry, humour, and dance to examine identity and role models and challenge cultural stereotypes.
After a hit run at Edinburgh and a successful UK tour in 2015, Racheal brought the show back for a return tour in 2017.
