“[An] extraordinary exploration of London life… It’s not to be missed.” – Time Out
Andrea Luka Zimmerman and Adrian Jackson‘s performative documentary, produced by Artangel, was shot in the now lost Nomadic Community Gardens off Brick Lane. Its cast of formerly homeless citizens dance together, steal together, eat together, agree and disagree, celebrate their differences and share their talents as they make their way through the city. Members of the cast will be in conversation with the film-makers.

This event is part of our season Ways of Knowing: Earth / Matter.
Andrea Luka Zimmerman is a Jarman Award winning artist, filmmaker and cultural activist whose multi layered practice calls for a profound re-imagining of the relationship between people, place and ecology. Focusing on marginalised individuals, communities and experience, the engaged practice employs imaginative hybridity and narrative re-framing, alongside reverie and a creative waywardness. Informed by suppressed histories, and alert to sources of radical hope, the work prioritises an enduring and equitable co-existence. Andrea grew up on a large council estate and left school at 16.
Adrian Jackson MBE was the founder-director and chief executive of the theatre company Cardboard Citizens, who produce work by and for those who have experienced homelessness, including former homeless people, those at risk of homelessness, refugees or asylum-seekers. The company tours theatre productions, especially interactive Forum Theatre, to venues including hostels, day centres, schools and theatres.
