A socially distanced performance at St Wilfrid's Church
A homeless hostel 'support worker' once said 'what dya need books for yr homeless?'
Our revenge was thirteen years of reading, graduating from the open university, 2016.
This highly visual performance is all about asking questions, regaining our voices, 'rewriting the future.'
We kick the bucket, demonstrate how red tape saves lives, ask is the money happy? We offer creative resistances and ultimately estate-agent plastic gets turned into a wee home lit by a book.
There’s crime-scene tape and free ‘zines for all and you can even send back your own uses of that crime scene tape post-show
The development of this work was supported as part of BOOST : the Third Angel Mentoring Scheme 2019 in association with Sheffield Theatres.
‘’Dizzying and hypnotic, cutting edge social commentary, part creative resistance and part performance. from austerity politics to the callous indifference of so-called systems of care, Gobscure's lived experience powerfully shows how the personal and political play out.
