As part of the Write Idea Festival in Whitechapel, People’s Palace Projects (PPP) will be staging Stage 3 at the Idea Store Whitechapel, 321 Whitechapel Road, London, E1 1BU on the 17 November 2018 at 13:00.
Performed by People’s Palace Projects’ new student theatre company at Queen Mary University of London, Stage 3 is a participatory experience that uses a mock citizenship process to discuss migration, discrimination and belonging, challenging the process of being categorized based on race, age and class background.
The performance brings together young people, other members of the community, and council members and is currently touring across the country as local leaders unite to persuade councils to make pledges as part of Safe Passage’s national “Our Turn” campaign, whose goal is to resettle 1,000 children a year in the UK from Europe and other regions where refugees are at risk, over the next 10 years.
Stage 3 is a student theatre company of People’s Palace Projects at Queen Mary University of London, harnessing the power of participatory theatre to support citizen activism and community engagement with decision makers. It is supported by the Peace Development Fund and National Lottery Awards for All.
