Where Will We Live? is Changing Face Collective's new verbatim play revealing the human stories behind the hyper-regeneration of London. Set in Brixton's Arches and Lambeth's council estates, the play's unforgettable characters bring to life the real challenges of gentrification.
This theatrical tapestry weaving music, humour and movement through interviews with politicians, and people living with eviction packs a punch. What happens to a vibrant community when faced with rising rents, evictions or demolition of their homes? The title of this fast-paced production is a quote from film director Spike Lee on New York gentrification is a global issue.
Written by journalist and award-winning writer, Elisabeth Winkler, and directed by Lucy Curtis, the play is a collaborative production by Changing Face Collective. Based in the centre of Brixton, the collective first came together in response to the 2011 Tottenham and Brixton riots.
Accompanied by an immersive exhibition of photography and film, Where Will We Live? is both a documentation and celebration of the people who make London what it is, and asks: what is a community worth? How do we quantify home?
