Situation

Modern Slavery and forced labour is a pernicious and largely invisible issue in the UK. It happens on our doorsteps and in our communities and we are committed to raising awareness of the scope of the problem and the effects it can have on individuals and communities. Although there are many charities dealing with these issues on a daily basis in terms of policy and working directly with affected communities, there is a lack of awareness within the general public.

Solution

Our parkour theatre show ON EDGE engages audiences of all ages with the issues of modern slavery in a compelling, accessible, and thought provoking manner. As an outdoor show presented in open public settings such as town squares, we can connect with the public directly. Through the knowledge imparted by the show, we seek to empower communities to see the signs of modern slavery, understand what they can do to make a difference and help end exploitation.

  • The work is a powerful testament to a challenging issue, that many have no awareness exists right at their doorsteps … this was translated to the audience who sat there in rapture during the entire production, riveted by both the narrative and the tempo which never ceased to infatuate and provoke.
