Kick starter campaign launch to get back on the Streets
Interval Productions bring their multi-award nominated ‘new kind of musical’, STREETS back, bigger and better than ever before, to The Vaults, for three shows only, supported using public funding by Arts Council England.
Streets is an exciting, hard hitting piece of theatre that puts a microscope on a group of young friends growing up in London at the time of the 2011 riots. It uses a cross art form approach to tell its story, featuring a cast of fresh and exciting young actors, beatboxing, rap, commercial dance, a live band and vocalists.
Join a group of friends as they struggle to make ends meet, making choices that will shape the rest of their lives. Watch them make mistakes, see them fall in and out of love, witness them facing impossible situations, and ask yourself, what would YOU do?
‘We are all products of our environments and there are reasons we make the choices we do. We’re all so quick to judge each other’s actions but what if you were faced with something unimaginable. Behind every closed door there is a story, we wanted to delve into that, look at an end result and work backwards. What factors caused it? What was inevitable? What could have been different? When did the beginning become the end?’, says Interval’s founder and STREETS co-writer, Tori Allen-Martin.
Tickets for the final show, on Saturday 10th January, include access to the after-party, featuring live performances (special guests TBA), with the venue remaining open until 2am.
The team are using perks for pledges public fundraising site ‘Kickstarter’ to help raise additional funds for the production. You can help by visiting their page, here
