Telling & Sharing Stories to Change the World with Naomi Cortes
2pm - 4pm

Workshop with 30 max capacity

How do we discover our own stories, learn how to realise their true value and place them at the heart of our creativity so they can help us to change the world?

This will be a collaborative and exploratory journey with theatremaker and wordsmith Naomi Cortes. Using spoken word and visual language, personal and political approaches, and non-traditional methods of storytelling, artists will be empowered to explore their personal relationships with storytelling.

From initial memories of childhood stories to their ‘battle cries,’ as they demand to be heard in an ever-changing world, artists will be encouraged to think about how their own unique and authentic voices can aim to bring about change, not only personally but also on a global scale.

About Naomi:
Naomi is a commissioned writer with the Young Vic, her play Umtolo was written in Zimbabwe, exploring its legacy of Colonialism and Christianity. Not Bound Within is her battle-cry to the exploitation of black women both past and present - exploring the real life history of Saartjie Baartman, the Hottentot Venus and her crucial relevance today. Her first play The Littlest Quirky, a story of magic and self-discovery for young children was shortlisted for the Brian Way Award.

Naomi has created new work with companies including the Donmar Warehouse, the Kiln and Almeida theatres, as well as Graeae Theatre Company and Trinity Laban. Her inclusive approach engages young people from various backgrounds including Special Educational Needs and EAL. She is also a lecturer in Applied Theatre at Central School of Speech and Drama and is associated with various London schools who participate in her Primary Poetry and LAMDA Examination Programme.

In the name of theatre, she has bounced on trampolines, mischievously scrambled up wardrobes and emerged through secret trapdoors. Singing Zulu lullabies, she has gurgled greetings to other planetary creatures. And she has even leapt out of a giant’s hat and hung upside-down whilst cuddling a baby mugglewump!

An electrifying roar of fury, a rallying cry of protest & a unifying celebration of strength packed with heroism and heart. A dirty dive into the foundations of power, an injection of a new narrative. MEAT is a hybrid of gig theatre, poetry, drag, and dance featuring live original music.

Show - open to the public!

HoneyBEE is a festival-driven show with a banging soundtrack, written and performed by Elle Dillon-Reams. This marathon feat of gig theatre tells the story of Kate, as she flits and stumbles through her twenties fuelled on highs and hedonism. Having had her world flipped at a festival, Kate finds herself on a journey to rediscover her identity and self-worth.

Within a heady mix of music, stand-up and spoken word, Kate's story represents a generation's search for purpose and the need to dance in the face of adversity.

It's Fleabag meets Kae Tempest with a dash of dirty bass.
