In A Tale of Two Cities, Tutesigensi charts her time in Durham as a student and explores the dualistic experience of the city and the multi-layered textures of identity that exist there. The city is both a bastion of the elite and a working-class cultural touchstone. It is also a place where people of colour, the migrant population and resident artists testify to a narrative beyond this.
