A Complicité Journey
A Complicité Journey is an in-depth project taking place over several years with secondary schools in Brent. Each year, students receive a series of devising workshops from Complicité Associate Artists before coming together with artists and theatremakers during half term to devise a brand new piece of work in dialogue with a current Complicité production.
In 2023, we worked with students at Newman Catholic College, Crest Academy, Ark Elvin Academy, Queens Park Community School and Capital City Academy using Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead as our starting point. Students explored representations of the natural world in theatre, and went on stimulus gathering expeditions into London’s natural spaces to inform the development of their work. During the week of devising, students collaborated with actors from Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead.
You can watch a short video of the students’ work below.
Students also attended the production of Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead at the Barbican. If you are interested in finding out more about this project, please email email@example.com.
