Voices of Tooting


Voices of Tooting.   2020 is already up there as one of the strangest years ever. What it has done is highlight the isolation some people endure. The need for community has never been more important.

We will be collaborating with a writer and inviting Tooting (South London) residents to join us in sharing stories of their experince in lock down. It will take the form of regular workshops, culminating in a performance by the residents and local actors.

We are currently seeking funding and will have further updates shortly.


Enrol

Shakespeare in the market.  Alongside one of the actors that works with us, we’ll  be collaborating with young people in Tooting (South London) to explore the relevance of Shakespeare’s stories in their own lives today.

Through a series of workshops we’ll discuss why Shakespeare is still around today, how his work can be applied to our own stories and how best to perform his work. And Shakespeare in the market, we’ll culminate with a performance in Tooting Market.

We are seeking funding for this project and will have further details shortly.
