From community areas to wild landscapes, spaces all around us are being stolen, lost, mishandled. Inspired by the attempted Wild Camping Ban on Dartmoor and the rising destruction of other community spaces, this episodic play explores the reaction to the loss of spaces through snapshots of various peoples’ lives. Combining stylised movement, original music and new writing, this abstract show dives into the meaning of spaces for the individual.

About the Barbican

Inspiring the next generation of artists and entrepreneurs.
Barbican Theatre is a dynamic charity started in 1980 with emerging artists, young people and the development of talent at the heart of all that we do. Our ambition has been to raise the standard of dance, theatre and music performance being produced by, with and for young people. We seek to challenge what traditional notions of theatre, music and dance are and liberate the imagination of young people to create fresh and exciting work that comes from new and unusual voices – voices that are often unheard. We challenge our young people to work hard at their craft and develop creative and social skills which enhance their learning, resilience and determination to succeed in whatever career path they choose.

ReBels Young Company is a project designed to be a springboard for emerging artists, allowing them to take on a creative challenge in a risk free environment without the financial barriers typically associated with touring. Barbican Theatre’s ReBel’s Talent Development has developed a cohort of early careers artists aged 18 - 25 and given them the paid opportunity to create a show suitable for touring. We provide participants with mentorship, support, funding and paid work to help them produce their first show from scratch. The mentorship is provided by a team of under 30s who range from established creatives in Plymouth, to early careers artists to participants in our pilot programme for ReBels Young Company. This programme aims to platform the unheard voices of Plymouth, all of the company and mentors are members of communities who have historically been underrepresented in the arts.This ethos extends throughout the entire development of this piece of work with the cast, crew and creative team being selected from an open call of early career artists.
