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.

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! to reserve a place send a message to email@example.com or just come down and join us.

You Should See The Other Guy will be running a FREE Art as Action workshop whilst at CPT, on Fri 21 Oct 2-4pm. ‘Art as Action’ is a community workshop in which participants will explore some of the techniques You Should See the Other Guy developed for Land of the Three Towers. Amongst other things we will explore sharing stories, interviewing, verbatim work, writing, chant, and song-making. The workshop will celebrate home, community and social action, while exploring any feelings you may have about the housing crisis. No singing experience necessary: this is not about being a performer, it’s about the voicing of collective stories. This utilizes the practices we’ve developed in the making of Land of the Three Towers, offering these tools for audiences to use themselves. Tea provided. Space is limited, so please email email@example.com to reserve a place.
