production information

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.

Supported by Shoreditch Town Hall
