Synopsis


How Can We Resist Social Cleansing?


Created and performed by a company of women at the heart of the London housing struggle, including those who have experienced homelessness and activists from Focus E15 Campaign, this vibrant ensemble show interweaves personal stories and exclusive material from housing campaigns to create a celebratory musical; a toolkit for housing resistance.


This is DIY Theatre::DIY Resistance, where art and activism is for anyone and everyone.


So bring your kids, bring your mum, bring your neighbour and bring your fight.


Come engage in some Civil Disobedience, fuelled by song.


Sock puppets provided.


In May 2018 we will be performing on two London estates fighting demolition - Carpenters Estate and Silchester Estate, and premiering at Brighton Fringe.


Our accompanying outreach programme explores the themes of the play and develops collective models for change (booking details to follow soon):
