THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 RUNNING TIME: 67 MINS Written and performed by Zena Edwards. Directed by Anthony Shrubsall. This comical and moving tale of unexpected friendship confronts the issue of security and identity through a fusion of performance poetry, theatre, movement and song. The chaotic stories of five characters in crisis are exposed through the eye of a camera. What happens when one generation collides with another and cultural expectations clash? Does the flash of a blade in broad daylight mean the end or beginning of Security? Zena Edwards takes storytelling into the twenty-first century. “Edwards is a superb performer, equally at ease as an elderly Caribbean man, as a would-be teenage MC, Ayleen, or as a lonely 47-year-old Palestinian photographer,Mahmoud.” Lyn Gardner - The Guardian Commissioned by Birmingham Rep in association with BAC
