About The Show
The Whose London Is It Anyway? smash hit returns to london community centres following a week's run at Camden People's Theatre.
“We are the Focus E15 mothers and we have been politically occupying four flats on Carpenters estate that have been left empty for years and years on end. We are fighting for social housing. Everybody deserves a place ot live. Come stand with us, stop evictions, stop people being forced out of London .”
Made by an all female cast including young mothers, people who have expereinced homelessness and housing activists from Focus E15, this unconvential verbatim show immerses you in a truly historic moment in the fight for social housing, not social cleansing.
Sam’s eviction notice is dated the day after she’s due to give birth. The council want to forcibly relocate Jasmin out of London. Mary’s lived on Carpenters Estate since 1967, and if Mr. Mayor thinks she’s leaving, he’s got another thing coming – he’ll have to drag her out.
So bring your kids, bring your neighbours and bring your fight. Come and engage in some Civil Disobedience, fuelled by song.
Art As Action Workshop
Everyone has a story to tell. You Should See The Other Guy present a workshop on storytelling and creating communal protest songs by using your own words, and stories. The workshop entails using the practices we use to make the songs in Land of the Three Towers, by using real words, sharing stories, using rythms and repitition to create musical pieces. Come celebrate your home, tell your struggle, and toether we'll make a protest song about it. You don't have to be a singer, or even musical! This workshop is much more about sharing stories, and spoken word collectively than being in tune! If you would like a workshop in your area / community drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
