Rebels Atlas (The Map Is Not The Legacy) maps out the intersectional struggles of different generations of Stratford (East London) and Coventry (West Midlands) residents as they attempt to resist regeneration, social cleansing, and displacement.
This work-in-progress maps out Sebastian’s own autobiography of moving to London in 2012, with collected narratives from local residents and activists; re-performing them through multimedia storytelling, song, movement, and audience interaction, Sebastian pin-points and draws connections between the narratives of estate demolition, activist meetings, slum landlords, the London 2012 Opening Ceremony, and many more.
“This is a performance about the power that maps, pathways, learning, and legacy can have on our urban lives – and what, if anything – we can do about it.”
‘Rebels Atlas’ was initially developed during 2019 with generous support from Coventry Shoot Festival, The Belgrade Theatre, Theatre Deli, ZU UK, University of East London, Focus E15 Housing Campaign Group, Bishopsgate Institute, and The Greater Carpenters Neighbourhood Forum.
