THE DEMOCRATIC SET

KNOWLE WEST & BARTON HILL, BRISTOL, JULY 2018

I feel alive Performer at Filwood Community Centre

100 people from across Bristol collaborated with world-renowned Back to Back Theatre to create a film of their city.

THE DEMOCRATIC SET came to the UK for the first time for our IBT10 Festival. In July 2018 Back to Back Theatre returned to Bristol to create a new film with people from across the city.

Over four days people joined us in Netham Park, Barton Hill and Filwood Community Centre, Knowle West. Their performances were captured on camera to create a film which will be premiered in Autumn 2019.

THE DEMOCRATIC SET was produced by In Between Time with Knowle West Media Centre, Up Our Street (Easton), Ambition Lawrence Weston & UWE. 

This project is part of We Are Bristol, a three-year programme which brings together international artists with the people of Bristol to create extraordinary artworks and events.

We Are Bristol has been developed in partnership with Up Our Street, Knowle West Media Centre, Ambition Lawrence Weston and UWE with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Bristol City Council
