The Good Neighbour - Battersea Arts Centre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
THE GOOD Neighbour, an interactive, site specific adventure for all ages investigating the hidden stories of Battersea Arts Centre’s Victorian Town Hall building and the surrounding streets, runs from October 13 to November 4, 2012.
Working in collaboration with an eclectic range of artists including Coney, Kazuko Hohki, Bryony Kimmings and Uninvited Guests, the show is made up of three pathways for three age groups – 5s and under, 6+ and 13+.
The aim is to inspire both young and old with stories of local heroes, acts of bravery and moments of human kindness. Each journey draws on the rich and diverse historical make-up of Battersea’s cultural identity to make a series of stories that unite the past with the future.
Everyone can eat together before the show and when all the adventuring is done, groups will be reunited to celebrate and swap stories. Don’t miss this chance to share something unique and authentic with friends and family.
Presented by BAC and Bloomberg, The Good Neighbour has been developed from an original idea by Sarah Golding, Associate Artistic Director of BAC, and Ruth Dudman.
Tickets: £8, £5 previews (October 13 and 14) – available from the box office on 020 7223 2223 or online at www.bac.org.uk/.
Times: 10:30am, 2:30pm and 6:30pm.
The Good Neighbour is the first of three productions this autumn and winter at Battersea Arts Centre. In December, BAC will present Kneehigh Theatre’s Midnight’s Pumpkin and in January, Little Angel Theatre’s A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings.
