“SECURITY” is a comical and moving tale of unexpected friendship which confronts the issue of security and identity through a fusion of performance poetry, hip hop theatre, movement and song. It’s the chaotic stories of four ordinary characters. Four extraordinary people with stories of resilience and evolution. They live in Tottenham but their stories could be about any inner city areas such as London, Hansworth, Liverpool.
“Security” is a concept that unites what is real and what is imagined. The show is the catalyst. The entire project includes a book, a film, a workshop program, a forum, a journey – but fundamentally the project was create to inspire a conversation about change.
“As a performer and writer, Zena Edwards takes storytelling into the twenty-first century.”
“Edwards is a superb performer, equally at ease as an elderly Caribbean man, as a would-be teenage MC, Ayleen, or as a lonely 47-year-old Palestinian photographer, Mahmoud.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
