Disruptive, radical and responsive international arts projects led by young emerging artists.

Part 1: ID:Babylon

An international project exploring what it means to be a young person in Europe today. These are the spoken word performances exploring belonging, borders and Britishness in a white world, through a Black lens. No set. No boundaries. Just stories.

Featuring: Maymuna Abdi, Peter Johnson (The Repeat Beat Poet), Tayo Olowo-Okere, Tendayi Mutongerwa

A collaboration with Potent Whisper and the Albany

Part 2: What Protects Us

An interdisciplinary performance devised from stories collected using the Decameron Method of verbatim interviewing.

Four artists from three communities across two countries have made a show from a riot of unheard voices. Local stories from Deptford, Stratford and Amsterdam are brought to life to explore the moments in people’s lives when they’ve had the feeling of regaining control.

Featuring artists Gabriel Jones, Urielle Klein-Mekongo, Sebastian H-W, and Leila Sahir. Directed by Milone Reigman. Artist Mentors are Libby Liburd and Caleb Femi.

Commissioned and produced by the Albany, Stratford Circus Arts Centre, Future Arts Centres, and Stichting Likeminds (Amsterdam)

Supported by Future Arts Centres and Creative Europe
