Picking up from where the first incarnation Land of the Three Towers left off, the next stage of our project will work with a new group of women and non-binary people who have personal experience of homelessness/ the social housing system/ housing activism to further explore the reality behind ‘Regeneration’.
We will collaboratively create a celebratory performance which will be a sort of rowdy visual essay – dismantling the causes and effects of Social Cleansing in London. This will be a mix of a fun-for-all-the-family day out and a radical toolkit for resistance.
We have just received Arts Council Funding to do this project over three months – culminating in 12 performances on two estates resisting demolition (Carpenters Estate and Silchester Estate) and Brighton Fringe.
Ticket bookings for Carpenters Estate and Silchester Estate performances will be available soon.
Do you have something to say about “The Housing Crisis”? Do you want to join an all female & non-binary theatre company? Do you have personal experience of homelessness or the social housing system? WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
Must be available for rehearsals & performances in London on: March 26th-29th April 16th-27th May 3rd-25th

About our process...
Through our casting, community performance venues and outreach programme we engage directly with those affected by the housing hardship and austerity measures, who are not usually given a platform to be heard. We prioritise engaging women and non-binary people with dependants, from ethnic minorities, and with disabilities. Our lengthly R&D process ensures our cast will take part in a nurturing, creative process. We will collaborative on research, devising and writing ensuring the cast have ownership and autonomy of the material. Our show will incorporate stories, providing a celebratory platform to enable important voices to be heard. Our creative methods avoid ‘straight monologue’ verbatim but instead use songwriting, movement, music and puppetry to bring these stories to life. Participants will also be given pastoral support.
