Reimagining Cacophony

Tuesday 19 March 2019, 4pm | Almeida Theatre

There Is Another Version Of Me  Elizabeth Garrett Anderson School
How many versions of you are there? Is there a ‘real’ you and who gets to see it? Through a process of interviews, questionnaires, discussion and devising, the group have created a revealing piece responding to their understanding of identity; online and in the ‘real’ world.

You & Me - Haverstock School
"Over the course of the sessions, we have been working on ensemble building exercises. We've focussed on free writing exercises, physical theatre and improvisation. Throughout these exercises, we've been exploring their own personal lived experiences, with a view that allowing ourselves to be fully seen can create authentic connections. The play Cacophony explores the voices of young people taking a stand for what they believe in. In a world where how we act and present ourselves is so closely magnified through social media, I wanted to create a space where being seen as yourself, with no filters, is an empowering political act in itself."

Redefining Perfect Highbury Fields School
"With Highbury Fields School, we started by examining shame and how, and why, we as humans use shame. As an all-female group, we then focussed the lens on society's shaming of women and young girls as a way of controlling and conforming. We spoke about what it means to be a woman and our relationship to feeling powerful. So this is our honouring. To the women that walked before us. To the women we are and are becoming. To all the women that will walk after us." - Director, Roberta Zurich
