And Did Those Feet – New City College Redbridge

Director’s Note
Albion is a play about Great Britain - what the country we live in is like today, who the people are, what we’re proud of, what shames us, what secrets we share and what makes us sing with pride. Is Britain cups of tea, rolling hills and Rule Britannia or is it Love Island and Grime?

And Did Those Feet is a response piece to Albion, devised with students from New City College alongside directors Anthony Lau and Abi Falase and sound designer Beth Duke. Taking the idea of Britain as a starting point, we looked at what this country means to them. What is their experience living and growing up in this country? What makes them angry? How do they see this country? What are they hopeful for and what do they see for the future?

In a time of growing division, when all too often we are being spoken for, all the words you hear are theirs. As are the hopes, fears and sense of what this Kingdom holds. United or otherwise.
