FACE ME explores the lives of four young people and their changing identities and friendships. FACE ME is a show about Celebrations– unravelling to reveal Lies, Isolation, Humiliation, Friendship, Love and Trust. FACE ME asks can you keep your identity and still belong in a group? And how far would you go to protect a friend?
FACE ME is an international theatre show created by directors, actors and designers from England, Estonia, Finland & Hungary. Together they have created new theatre for teenage audiences: interactive; compelling; emotional; engaging. Students from George Green’s School have worked with Emergency Exit Arts in partnership with Platform 11+ to produce a show which questions what theatre can be and blurs the edges of the stage and the audience… who’s in it, and who’s not?
After being in London in November it will tour to Estonia, Finland & Norway. As it travels across Europe working with young people, the performance will shift & evolve to become informed by their creativity & talent. Nearly 200 young people will have been in the cast of FACE ME – creating a truly unique European experience with amazing memories, friendships & experiences.
