Justice in Motion
12 August Riverside Community Centre
13 August Greenham Community Centre
FREE Outdoor Performance
A hard-hitting urban odyssey which combined a spectacular blend of physical theatre, parkour and trials bike stunts with live rap and music.
In this latest production, fast-rising UK performance company Justice in Motion explored the growing rise in County Lines drug gangs.
On a specially-designed urban playground, a team of skilled athletes and performers dramatically showed what is happening to our young people as they fight to escape being drawn into a web of drug crime and exploitation.
In the run up to the show Justice in Motion was in residency to explore the impact of county lines creatively with young people between the ages of 16-18. After learning skills in parkour movement and theatre-making they had a chance to create small moments within the show and perform to the public alongside the professional cast. Lunch was provided for the participants at both locations and a limited travel bursary was available.
CODE took place at two different locations in residential areas in Newbury.
