Background


Deborah 'Debris' Stevenson is a young poet, musician and dancer who has performed her unique work everywhere from BBC Radio 3's The Verb to London's Roundhouse.


Created as part of Represent, a series of artworks inspired by the Representation of the People Act 1918.


While the act gave the vote only to women over 30, Represent invites young female artists to explore democracy, equality and inclusion in contemporary Britain.


Synopsis


What happens if you fight against the odds, against the opinions and attitudes that surround you, to achieve the life you want - and then realise it's not what you need?


Step into a pirate radio station, a teenage bedroom and a house party as an outsider battles to find her voice.


Thirteen years after encountering the early days of London's grime scene, Debris Stevenson uses music, movement, lyrics and poetry to recall how it gave her permission to redefine success and become a poet.
