SHOES is a double bill of film and live performance about a community talking to itself. It’s the result of an artists’ residency in Bexhill in which a team of theatre and film makers listened to a group of local people talking about their shoes and the journeys they had made in them. They included tales about breaking a curse, dancing alone, walking up the red carpet, putting on busking shoes, running away from the palace, walking away from grief, running towards glory, bathing the dying, meeting gypsies in the wood, putting on the poisonous red shoes and wanting a true response.
If loneliness is a modern curse SHOES is a reminder of how magical life can be when we speak and someone listens.
No social class, cultural, educational or political institution owns these riches. Let’s feast on our lives.
