People United and Jasmin Vardimon Company co-commissioned artist/director R.M Sánchez-Camus and composer/songwriter Isa Suarez to explore the theme of ‘courage’ in collaboration with local people in Ashford, Kent.
With the help of residents, community groups and performers, the artists developed a series of thought-provoking, celebratory performances inspired by people’s stories of, and perspectives on, courage and what it means to be courageous.
The project culminated in a town-wide promenade of street theatre, spoken word performances, live music, puppetry, skateboarding, aerialists, dancers, installations and song.
Working with People United and Jasmin Vardimon Company was such a wonderful opportunity for us to contribute, as artists, to revealing a vibrant community. We felt we were in good hands and good company to create something special in the streets of Ashford with the people of Ashford. R.M Sánchez-Camus and Isa Suarez
