Our Place - Manor Gym, Brighton

It’s a community takeover - after two incredibly successful festivals, Your Place is becoming Our Place. 

For the third year running we’ve been working in partnership with Brighton People’s Theatre, Due East, Hangleton and Knoll Project, and the community steering committee to enable local residents to make their vision come to life. This year the communities have taken control of the event, bringing more free family-friendly theatre, dance, music, games, activities and workshops to Hangleton and East Brighton.

Highlights include:
Apocalyptic Circus -  My House
A circus theatre experience for little people and their families; look through the doors and windows of this magical, quirky structure and explore the habits and routines of a home. 

Upswing – Catch Me 
Catch Me is a surprising take on age and gender. An older women and younger man balance and jump across a stack of chairs. Together they discover all the people they can be. Part installation, part performance - Catch Me asks how we see each other and who we value.
