Originally piloted at Chingford Foundation School, Scarabeus led a series of innovative sharing and performance events at the School, at the Lea Valley Festival and at an Olympics Conference at the Bernie Grant Arts Centre in London.
Using as a starting point issues that were central to this group of 20 young people (knife crime, bullying etc), we facilitated them to devise material combining aerial dance and forum theatre.
The young people used the vehicle of site-specific aerial performance to express their experiences and opinions to their peers and community.
