Part of a series of Bristol Temple Quarter commissions coordinated by Watershed, Knowle West Media Centre and MAYK, with funding from Arts Council England.
Originally commissioned as part of Watershed’s Theatre Sandbox in partnership with Soho Theatre.
Combining theatre, technology and a cinematic soundtrack, Give Me Back My Broken Night takes you on a walk through the city streets, inviting you to imagine the future of your area and see it appear before your eyes.
With every step, the audience walks further into the future, and alternative versions of the area reveal themselves. You become urban planners, collaborating on your own designs and imagined architectures. A vision of Deptford’s future based on the collective imagining of those present is drawn live and projected during every performance.
