Here we are back with a good story to tell you: it’s the story of our astonishing performance at the SouthBank Centre. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us. For you who missed the performance don’t worry because we are going to tell you what happened that day. You will get extra content about what happened before and after the performance, and the reviews from the audience.
It all began with us sitting on the map of London and waiting for the audience to enter the famous Blue Room. As soon as they got into the room they looked over the models that we had placed at the opposite side of the room. They where four models which represented London starting from four different ideas. We mostly used cardboard to make the buildings and they were placed on fibreboard. Once the audience sat we started the performance with a terrific song about London and the people who make London what it is now. Then we started to move around the map like someone was watching us using CCTV cameras and we had to express our first thought about London in one word or sentence. The scene was intense and the audience was really involved.
We stood up and we started sharing our experience of where we live and a story about where we used to live. Then we invited brave people from the audience to come on the map and to tell us about where they live and what are their memories of where they come from or where they used to live.
People from the audience thought they have gone to Secret Cinema, because we were showing some films made by us and, at the same time, acting on the stage, and what was good is that the tickets were for free. With these films we wanted to show different stories from the past, starting from an object or a situation; for example: a golden sword, a macaque monkey, an old taxi, shackles, a bar and there are more to come in the next performances.
Enough said about the performance because we would like you to come and experience it!
We were supported by Pan Team and everyone did an amazing job, we were happy to show what we have learnt during our time here and we hope you’ve got something to take home with you!
Here is the lovely feedback from the audience. We hope to see all of you next time!
