Project, 2018

Loneliness in the City featured the work of 10 Year 10 drama students at Chessington Community College. The students collaborated with Bounce Theatre to conceive a city through the eyes of the lonely. The piece blended dialogue, visual art, and photography to highlight the hidden stories of loneliness that seep into the walls of a city. The work was exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery and Rose Theatre.

The work originated from a commission from The Royal Borough of Kingston, looking at young people’s views on urban living. They have focused on themes of mental health and well-being. Through the project, 165 children and young people achieved an Arts Award.
