Go Between | Taking Part

Go Between was a Taking Part community show inspired by Isango Ensemble’s A Man of Good Hope. The beautiful collaboration between director Anna Girvan, writer Archie Maddocks and participants who are currently homeless or have experienced homelessness in the past explored what home means to all of us.

The show was inspired by the 30 members of the “creative, passionate, witty and optimistic” company and their own experiences, drawn together through workshops and sessions over 4 months, since September 2016.

Go Between also featured a photography exhibition by Jordan Lee, a photographer who spent 3 months with the company documenting the process from devising and rehearsals to the full production. The stunning exhibition was open to all at Platform Southwark and was visited by audiences and participants alike.

Anna said, “We hope that this production will give an insight to how we are all just people, people who want to love, live, experience life, shout, stomp, sit in silence, be challenged and listened to, respected and deserve that basic human right; a home.”

A chance for you to perform in a Young Vic Community Show

The Young Vic puts on two community shows a year with full professional creative and production teams in one of our theatre spaces. This June, partly inspired by seeing inclusive shows working with BSL interpreters, foreign languages and people with Tourettes Syndrome, we are looking for a fully inclusive cast of adult participants all of whom communicate in diverse ways – be that users of BSL or people with TS.
