Rich Mix brings you We Are Shadows: Brick Lane, an immersive smart phone adventure on foot, inspired by ‘E1’ in Tower Hamlets. The participants’ adventures will begin with a call on their mobile phones from which they will be navigated through and around Brick Lane, taking them on a magical-realist journey where shadows are revealed around every corner.
Artist Afsana Begum and her collaborators from community theatre company Rightful Place will guide you around the place they call home. Beyond the curry house strip and trendy bar culture, this place has history. Discover the real Brick Lane – from Bengali laskars to Satanic wedding guests, local wrestlers to the street’s most successful family – these people have cast their shadows onto these pavements and invite you to see Brick Lane as you’ve never seen it before.
Each slot is for up to six people. Please make sure your group bring your own smartphones and headphones. It runs from Sat 5 September – Friday 2 October. The event lasts for 1 hour. Time slots are variable. Please see website for more details.
