Between the 13-18 July the Ovalhouse Theatre will decamp up the hill to Brixton, bringing us ‘I am Your Neighbour’ – a festival celebrating neighbourly friendliness as well as their upcoming company move to the heart of Brixton.
The festival is produced by Truth about Youth and combines performance, spoken word, theatre, music and workshops in venues across Brixton including The Black Cultural Archives and Pop Brixton.
Highlights of the festival include ‘I am a Promise’, a theatrical performance devised by 13-18 year olds and performed in the courtyard of the BCA in response to their powerful ‘Staying Power’ exhibition, and ‘Come Dine with Us’, a lunch with delicious food, readings and surprising conversations guaranteed.
Speaking about ‘I am Your Neighbour’, Deborah Bestwick, the Ovalhouse Director said: “This festival is a taste of what we will bring to Brixton in our new theatre in 2017 – now is the time to get involved, see the work, enjoy what the young people of South London have to say – and support Ovalhouse. We look forward to meeting you”.
