Family performance How Can We Tell It?
April 2 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm£1 – £3
Come along to this spellbinding, interactive performance with local storytelling trio East3, as they explore the importance of celebrating and sharing your language and culture through song, dance, stories, and folktales.
Rooted in real London stories from Bangladeshi, Jewish, East End communities and more, this performance will dive into the multicultural fabric that makes London – and specifically east London – what it is, as well as the power of lived language, translation, and creativity.
This performance is interactive, inclusive, and open to children and families of all ages. There will also be small tasters available of food from some of East London’s many cultures (Covid-allowing).
East3 is made up of storytellers Shamim Azad and Sef Townsend, and musician Paul Burgess. Dedicated to celebrating London’s diversity through intercultural collaboration and sharing, East3 has performed at events and festivals including the Tower Hamlets Boishaki Mela, and Great Day Out in Victoria Park.
East3 emerged from the East storytelling project run by Bethnal Green-based Daedalus Theatre Company in association with BSK UK and Rua Arts. This long-running initiative, led by Shamim, Sef and Paul, has brought together people from East London’s different cultures, religions and ethnicities to share their stories and songs. It’s given a great many people, often with no prior performance experience, a chance to develop storytelling skills through a programme of sharing events, coaching, and performance opportunities.
