Alongside the main production of Feast, our Taking Part department has been coordinating a ‘parallel’ production called Flash. 20 people from our local boroughs – aged between 14 and 56 – have come together to devise a performance inspired by Feast.
Flash is the Young Vic’s first intergenerational parallel production and it is designed to celebrate the multicultural heritage of Lambeth and Southwark. Participants with Brazilian, Indian, Nigerian, French, Italian, Mozambique, Scottish and Jamaican heritage, amongst others, have joined together to devise a performance based on the stories, dances and celebrations of their own cultures.
Wow – sounds incredible!
