A collaborative heritage performance project between Scarabeus, Islington Education Library Service, Samuel Rhodes School & designer Belinda Ackermann. 

Twist, Rock, ‘N’ Jive

Exploring the swinging 60’s through physical theatre and dancing twists to our hearts content, the project saw Samuel Rhodes SEN Secondary school pupils immerse themselves into the colourful world of the 60’s.

Pupils created artwork inspired by artists such as Andy Warhol and design inspired by Biba and the space age. The project culminated in a promenade performance around the school building and a permanent exhibition created at Islington Education Library Service.

Project supported by Heritage Lottery Fund.
