The Drama 4 Change and The Knife Angel Hereford Project
The Young people from the “Drama 4 Change” group have produced a sensitive emotive piece around Knife Crime and aggression for the Knife Angel monument against violence and aggression visiting Hereford in June. The piece will be produced as a short 10-minute film filmed by Creative Arcade and also as a live performance. The film will be shown as part of the opening ceremony which is to be streamed live from Hereford Cathedral on the 15th of June. The live performance will be performed as part of the closing ceremony vigil on the 11th of July.
Drama 4 Change will run free to attend workshops in partnership with The Knife Angel Hereford on the 25th and 26th June through out South Wye and the City
Following watching either the Knife Angel performance or film (dependent on time of workshop) the participants will have an awareness and knowledge of the decisions affecting an individual who may perpetrate a knife crime. The participants will be making a series of creative responses within the workshop, supported by the facilitators.
Participants will use free writing to respond to the performance/ film, they will thought track the feelings of a character with a knife in their hand. The participants will also examine a moment with two characters where they will get to try out a variety of consequences of an individual's actions with the facilitators working in role here to add to the story/experience. The workshop will end with positive messages of actions we can all take to prevent knife crime.
