We will deliver an interdisciplinary dance theatre project that explores issues of identity, displacement, loss, memory, belonging and nostalgia in times of global mobility. We will examine issues of identity and belonging of displaced people living in London and Brexit, and how they affect people’s lives. Project has 2 elements – 1) professional interdisciplinary dance theatre work with audience participation and 2) workshops for local residents in Church Street and Paddington Basin exploring the above themes. There will be 2 groups of local residents working with us at different times (and locations) – women only group and mixed group (men and women).

What we'll deliver:

  • workshops for local residents
  • performance by the workshop participants
  • professional theatre performances

Why it's a great idea:

Local and wider audience will have an opportunity to enjoy a unique piece of interdisciplinary dance theatre performance with audience participation and explore themes that affect their lives and/or those of people in their community Project will brining new and existing audience to the local theatre contributing to the life of the theatre and local community Local residents will have an opportunity to take part in an interdisciplinary theatre workshops learning and developing skills, exploring themes that affect their lives and their community, and will express themselves artistically Local residents will have an opportunity to meet and socialise with other local people and make friends in the local community Businesses who wish to invest in local community will have an opportunity to contribute to the lives of local residents

Steps to get it done:

  • Creating a professional show
  • Performing 4 shows at the threatre
  • Devising workshops for the community and finding artists to deliver them
  • Delivering workshops to the local residents

We would like to deliver part of the project at the Cockpit Theatre and other local venues in the area. As we have experience of delivering classes in Church Street to local residents we have identified two groups of people who would benefit from the workshops – women only group in the mornings and mixed group with men and women in the evenings. Women only group caters for mothers, house-wives, part-time workers and members of Muslim community who don’t mix with men for religious reasons. Mixed group caters for men and women who work full and can only take part in activities after work. Both groups and wider community will benefit from the professional performance.
