One Million

Sat 1 Feb 2014

How do you get onto the career ladder when all the rungs are broken? What does it mean for a generation to face the start of their working lives in uncertain economic times? As the number of unemployed 18-25 year olds in the UK hovers at around one million, this energetic fusion of music, poetry, acrobatics and spectacle brings together a huge cast of young people to probe the aspiration and effort, the apathy and energy that are prompted by such high levels of youth unemployment.

Powered by the optimism of youth, Tangled Feet’s immersive performance uses spectacular large-scale effects, high-voltage physical theatre and dazzling pyrotechnics to capture the power, fragility and ambition of the next generation in a time of change, with a live band featuring music by Guy Connelly and Nick Gill and words by the poet Anthony Anaxagorou.
