Vintage Voices meets BYT

BYT members had a great evening performing their spoken word pieces at the Vintage Voices sharing.




Under the theme, ‘We Belong’ they created and performed work that focused on identity, and explored their anxieties around fitting in.







Their pieces brilliant complimented the reminiscences of the older participants.

BYT – New terms starts on Friday 20 April 6pm-8pm

We have some exciting projects coming up – starting with some Spoken Word workshops and rehearsals for the ‘We Belong’ Vintage Voices event (details below) – check it out.

‘We Belong’ Vintage Voices and Brixton Youth Theatre event – 28 April 2018

Brixton Community Base and Sixteenfeet Productions would like to invite you to an evening of readings, recordings and reminiscence mapping Brixton’s recent past.  The event will be hosted by the spoken word artist Elliot Daley, aka ‘Wordplay’ and will feature performances by Brixton Youth Theatre.

This project has involved local people sharing their memories of Brixton from the 1950’s to the present day.  The resultant stories are thought-provoking, moving and at times very funny!  We are presenting original works under the 2018 Brixton Design Trail theme, ‘We Belong’ as an acknowledgement of the connectivity between different culture, ages, hopes and ambitions.  

Come and join us at Brixton Community Base, Talma Road, SW2 1AS on Saturday 28 April from 6.30pm for a 7pm start.

If you are interested in joining BYT and taking part in this event please getting touch.
