Where does the mental map of your favourite place begin and end? When do you edit it to account for new experiences? Applied Theatre student Laetitia Butler puts Performing Places Bexley in conversation with our sensory experiences of personal places.
Since 11 May 2018, the Performing Places Bexley team has organised 20 talks and workshops and asked more than 1000 participants to ‘decode’ communications from Par Bexia. We have visited primary and secondary schools, community organisations and large-scale community events. This week, we move into an intensive week of Place activities leading up to the main event on 30 June 2018, on Bexleyheath Broadway.
A cold winter afternoon. Snow is thick and Bexleyheath Broadway is filled with young people who have just come out of school. This is a fictional story of an imagined meeting between two young women, passionately proud of Bexley.
In the midst of the ‘vasty deep’ of this major project with countless key stakeholders, Prof. Sally Mackey reflects on the experience of tiny critical creative moments.
25 January 2018: we have arranged a trip to Bexleyheath archives. On this day, 'we’ are Sally Mackey, project manager Suha Al-Khayyat, applied theatre practitioner Claire Macneill and project scribe, Adelina Ong.
