Falling/Landing: Tamasha R&D

Members' Event

Falling/Landing Image

Young performers from inner city areas perform creative responses to 1995 film La Haine.

The release of Mathieu Kassovitz’s seminal film held up a mirror to the social ills of modern France during a testing time in the nation’s history. Three new pieces written by Tamasha writers Alia Bano, Melanie Pennant and Sumerah Srivastav, directed by Elayce Ishmael (Girls, Talawa national tour 2017) will emerge from collaborative workshops following a screening of La Haine in the Barbican Cinema.

These three, ten minute extracts of new material for the stage are the first glimpse of what Tamasha hope will become new productions. The young actors from Company Three, Generation Arts and Guildhall School of Music and Drama will perform these works-in-progress, script in hand, followed by an audience Q&A, chaired by Tamasha’s artistic director Fin Kennedy.

This performance lasts approximately 60 minutes and will start at 16:30. Join us for a complimentary drink in the Green Room after the performance. Please RSVP to [email protected] to secure your place.
