Engage with the new generation on a city rooftop and share your visions of the past, present and future.
Created in collaboration with local primary school children, Lookout is a one-to-one encounter between one adult audience member and one child performer taking place somewhere high up overlooking the city.
Together, performer and audience member look out at the city and imagine its future. The conversation they share is a quiet journey through the past, present and future guided by the streets and landmarks laid out before them.
Through dreams of utopian architecture and possible catastrophes, hopes and fears, future fashions, proposed demolitions and progress real and imagined, they explore two very different versions of the city they both inhabit. An exchange between two people who might not normally meet, about a future world they may or may not share.
Lookout is an attempt to consider big questions in a small way. This version is developed through a series of workshops with children from Canon Barnett Primary School in Tower Hamlets.
