But I didn’t want to keep breathing… I couldn’t believe that life would be resigned to this cycle, the rotation of in and out.
Do you ever feel like your life is subscribed to a routine? A monotonous cycle of thoughts and actions, attempting daily to feel fulfilled – to fulfil others... to fill your voids?
VOID is an exploration of the soul's anatomy. This striking piece of new writing by Birmingham-based writer Rumi Woolf breaks boundaries of form, linearity and storytelling in a unique participatory experience, bringing to the forefront issues of human need, desire, obligatory love, the constant stream of connection and dissociation – and the addictive nature of Tesco meal deals.
This performance is a special performance primarily for young people 14+, and will feature the work of the young people The S+K Project works with across the Spotlight Youth Centres. The evening will also include a work-in-progress showing of "It's A O", a piece directed by S+K's Outreach CoordinatorDavid Gilbert.

A THEATRE OF INTENTION + (IM)POSSIBILITY
Recommencing Friday 15 January 2018
After a successful trail run, we've brought back two of London's top performance poets for a unique programme for 11-19 year olds to explore all things theatre and poetry. This is an opportunity to get to grips with the basics of both art forms, and create work that can take any shape which intertwines the two mediums of theatre and poetry, resulting in a showcase in the Spotlight theatre later on in the term. This programme is open to ALL young people of all abilities, experiences, backgrounds and interests,
About the poets: Gabriel Akamo is an actor, poet and creative producer whose work aims to capture snapshots of thought, and provoke questions in his audiences. His work seeks to bridge the perceived gap between performance and page poetry. He is part of the 2017/18 Barbican Young Poets cohort, was a member of the Roundhouse Poetry collective and won The Poetry Society's SLAMbassador's UK competition in 2011. He has since been commissioned by the London Transport Museum and the Southbank Centre to name a few, and has trained and acted with The Actors Class and the National Youth Theatre.
Amina Jama is a writer, performance poet and facilitator. Her work investigates notions of love, family, faith and identity, often leaving readers and audiences alike in a state of reflection and awe. Her distinctive writing style, combined with a charismatic personality, has led her to be commissioned by the BBC, The Mayor of London and the Barbican to name a few. She was a member of the Roundhouse x BBC 1Xtra Words First collective, is an alumni of the Barbican Young Poets, and is an active member of London collective Spit the Atom and the WOC national collective Octavia, led by poet Rachel Long.
