CROWDED - theatre performance for young people, 12 March - updated venue and start time
Brent Libraries SPINE Festival 2019 presents:
An Apples and Snakes and Half Moon production for teenagers / secondary schools and adult audiences
Tuesday 12 March, 4.30 – 5.45pm
1 Humphry Repton Lane,
Free but book in advance at www.brent.gov.uk/events
How do you sort your head out when it gets too crowded in there?
It’s the beginning of summer and the community festival is in full swing in the local park. Everyone is there. Crowds queue but among the smiles and excitement lies something that could spoil this party...
Developed in direct response to the growing number of teenagers in the UK struggling with their mental health, Crowded tells the story of ordinary young people whose anxiety, depression and desire leads to harmful and destructive behaviours.
Giving voice to emotions that are often unspoken due to social stigma, Crowded is a powerful, funny and uncompromising story presented in a striking spoken word show by three exciting young poet-performers: Desree Gumbs-Carty, Laura Rae and Slam the Poet.
This production contains themes that some people may find distressing.
The SPINE Festival is a strategic programme of activity with libraries in London that has been developed by Apples and Snakes, England's leading organisation for spoken word and performance poetry. The aim of SPINE is to engage more children and young people with literature and creative cultural activities in their local libraries as well as encouraging schools to build lasting connections for longer-term impact.
A booking form will need to be completed by the lead teacher once a booking has been agreed verbally or by email as official confirmation. This needs to be sent in within 24hours of agreement. Failure to do so means the event offer is likely to go to the next school on the list. In the event of cancellation by a school for this booked event, Brent Libraries requires a minimum of one week’s notice to enable them to make alternative booking arrangements for another school. Failure to do so will result in your school being invoiced for the cost of the event. Whilst this event is FREE to secondary schools, the production has been funded by Arts Council England. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.
Contact details for booking a visit to your secondary school or Wembley library. Email communication preferred. Please email all contacts together in order to avoid double bookings
