‘A Place For Belonging’ was Strictly Collaborative’s maiden performance performed in 2010.
This project was all about the places you turn for comfort and safety, whether it is your family, home, city, village, school or hobbies. What does it mean to you? How do you feel about where you live? What makes you feel ‘at home’?
This was a devised piece that highlighted the things that made the company members feel all warm and fuzzy inside, that made them feel comfortable. ‘Strictly Youth’ only make autobiographical devised performance this is so the company have a creative voice.
‘Place For Belonging’ was a multi media performance which combined music, dance, physical theatre, projections and theatre to create an accurate interpretation of the companies thoughts and feelings on the subject matter.
The aim of this performance was to show that, despite the barriers we face and the abilities which we contend with on a day to day basis, we are very much the same.
The following is the final performance filmed at the Barbican Theatre on the 19th March 2010
We have had fantastic feedback from audiences, parents and participants.
