Almeida Young Company presents

Do you let people influence you? Would you fight for peace? Is who you are determined by where you live? Is race important? From the Ground Up is a thrilling and provocative interactive show that unites and divides the audience through a series of challenging questions, stories and dilemmas, both political and personal. When faced with a difficult choice that can define you, will you step right or will you step left? Created by a group of 16-to 25-year-olds, written by Joeri Smet (Ontroerend Goed) and directed by Christopher Elmer-Gorry.
