Stan's Cafe: One looks, marvels and understands

The Name of Action

September 8th, 2011

Next up The Name of Action: a site-specific installation @ A.E. Harris, created around five new films made by young people aged 15-18yrs. Each film, shot in diverse locations in and around Birmingham, combines simple but powerful imagery with a Shakespeare text, conveying fresh perspectives on the fears, frustrations, anger and fantasies of young people in the city. With the films screened simultaneously on the post-industrial surfaces of the factory, you are invited to make your own way through the spaces, viewing and re-viewing the contradictory forces and features shaping Birmingham’s next generation.

This piece is made by Theatre Ark, long term friends of @ A.E. Harris. Details of dates and times are to the right here.

Theatre Ark aims to facilitate the broadest learning of its young members in the field of theatre arts, to enable them, as young, active citizens of Birmingham and its surrounding areas, to find and develop a collective, artistic identity and voice in the cultural life of the city, and to work to express creatively and constructively their experience of being young people in these times.
