Silencer by Mem Morrison: We have seen a lot of people recently on marches across London, for many different reasons. If you were going to march to tell the world about something……what would it be?
This 'silent protest' is part performance, part exhibition. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of the political, cultural and individual challenges faced by local people living and working in your area, giving a voice to the many unsung heroes who have helped shape it. Silencer is a deliberate act to create something outwardly positive and to encourage an exchange between differing opinions and views. The project aims to share our histories, aspirations and optimism for a better future.
Come and see what your community cares about. And if you'd like to include your cause, take part by joining one of the free creative writing workshops with Mem Morrison at Watermans Arts Centre in Brentford - click here to book your free space. There is a family workshop and a workshop for adults only.
Eleni and Bethanie established Levantes Dance Theatre in 2005 to create bold innovative work. The company has been funded mostly through commissions, upon which we have developed a national reputation and track record of delivering high-quality successful productions.
Since 1979 Akademi has taken South Asian dance into outdoor spaces, re-defining the parameters of the art form and directly bringing art to the public. Their pioneering work has nurtured world-class artists like Akram Khan MBE and Shobana Jeyasingh, contributing significantly to Britain’s international reputation for innovation in South Asian dance.
They have produced performances across the UK and built a highly-regarded participation programme delivering social, education and health impacts.
