Our Constellations – City of London Academy: Highbury Grove
It has been such a joy to work with the passionate, forward thinking, funny, kind and talented young people that you will meet during this show. I hope that you enjoy being in their company as much as I have and leave understanding more about the life of a teenager and hopeful that the future is in good hands. This piece takes some of the key themes from Three Sisters and reimagines directly into the lives and minds of these young people. All the words that you will hear this afternoon have come directly from the young people. These are their ideas, stories, secrets, opinions and passions told through poetry that they created under the incredible direction of Yomi Sode who we have been so lucky to partner on with this project. For most of the performers this is their first adventure into theatre making. They told me that happiness is being themselves to the best of their ability and this piece does just that and more.
