Free for All
The Free For All Project works with education centres, cathedrals and schools, giving thousands of children the opportunity to explore what freedom means today, as well as its importance for the future of our world. This project has been running since 2007 and was originally produced to commemorate the bicentenary of the abolition of the slave trade bill in 1807
Synopsis – Through drama, song and dance, the story of a young girl taken captive from her home town Sierra Leone by an English Slave ship Captain weaves in and out of some of the most dramatic historical events that shaped the modern era. Through physical theatre we show the American War of Independence, the French Revolution, Caribbean uprisings, massive anti-slavery campaigns in the industrial cities and the Battle of Trafalgar. We meet some of the brave men and women who stood up against the slave trade and explore the legacy it leaves with us today.
