FOSTERING BOLD CONVERSATIONS ACROSS A DIVIDED NATION
I am the Outreach Associate for Headlong Theatre. I am currently setting up their first community project, Headlong Futures.
Headlong Futures is a bold and ambitious project which brings together four distinctive communities across England, creating four unique stories.
The UK is in turmoil. The zeitgeist is one of division and defiance. Headlong Futures is a response to this confusion. Working in collaboration with the local communities, exploring how we can work together across generations, across backgrounds and across the nation.
Revealing stories from communities that uncover the fractures within our country, Headlong Futures has worked with Bristol Old Vic, New Perspectives, Theatre Royal Plymouth and Brewery Arts Centre to create four local shows. Over the next 6 months, Headlong Theatre and awards winning writer Stef Smith will take these shows and fuse them into one larger play which will be presented in early 2019.
