The Fast>>Forward project will be touring Schools in the London borough of Croydon from
Friday 23rd until Friday the 30th of November 2012.
The play contains urban music and street dance and is inspired by the theme of Parkour/ Free-Running. It focuses on three young people, who pause to consider how to move forward with their lives. Should they stay on at school, go for further training or find employment?
The performance is followed by an interactive workshop, which explores the consequences of decisions the characters have made in the play and the range choices open the young people in the audience.
The project will last for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes (which includes a 50 minute Performance and a 40 minute Workshop).
This month we toured the Shakespeare play ‘As You Like It’ in schools around London in partnership with the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts. The tour was a huge success and we’re already excited about planning next years play.

On Tuesday Andy and I organised my own drawer in the cupboard to keep all of my project work in. I have many different projects happening with TCW at the moment and needed somewhere to store my work. I really enjoyed it, it was very fun.
On Wednesday we cooked a Lasagne and Andy took some photographs of me preparing it for a comic book style recipe book we are going to make. I like cooking; my favourite food is Jamaican food. In the afternoon I went rock climbing. I really enjoy the rock climbing sessions.
Today I have done Music. I do drumming in music; we are trying to form a band. We are working well as a group.
Recently I have also visited the National Theatre on the South Bank to look at lighting.
I am interested in lighting and my youth club allow me to do the lighting for their shows.
I am also just starting a photography project where I am being taught all different things about cameras.
Our Brand New Promo Video is nearing completion and will be viewable very soon right here or on the TCW YouTube channel alongside many of our previous projects.
This week in the TCW Center, I did a variety of things.
One of those things was rock climbing. I also did music, I enjoyed myself playing the drums.
I did Maths and all different things, some of which I didn’t like.
My favourite thing was music.
Not My Problem’ is a play about bullying, covering a wide range of highly debated issues including racism, sexism and homophobia.
Set in a wrestling ring, the play identifies those who are responsible when bullying takes place and explores solutions in dealing with the problem.
The project also allows the audience to examine the thoughts, feelings and anxieties the victim experiences.
An interactive workshop followed shortly after each performance of the play. During the workshop the play is revisted with members of the audience given the opportunity to replace the actors and explore alternative outcomes of key scenes.

Gang*Star is an Urban Musical Written by Phillip Ashbourne featuring Rap, DJ and Breakdance.
The main purpose of the Gang*Star Project is to raise awareness of the brutal realities of gang involvement by shattering the glorified gangster lifestyle image and presenting hard hitting facts about the consequences of gang involvement and carrying dangerous weapons.
Gang*Star has been created as an early intervention scheme and is designed to help prevent and reduce gun and knife crime, and gang involvement.
After touring with Gang*Star, we received feedback for the need to also take this message into primary schools, because issues relating to gangs are also prevalent amongst this age group. In response to this, TCW has written an 11 year old character into the play and we look forward to extending the November 2011 tour.
The Recent report ‘This is it. This is my life’ (Rota, 2011) has concluded that ‘we should no longer question whether or not gang-related or series youth violence is an issue for woman and girls across England, it is.’ Gang*Star encompasses a female character and highlights issues surrounding sexual violence and exploitation.
Project Oracle is the Mayor’s new programme for understanding and sharing what really works in preventing youth crime in London”. The Gang*Star Project has been invited onto this scheme which means for the next tour of Gang*Star, in November 2011, all of our work will be evidenced-based and we will be able to demonstrate what impact are services are having.

In October 2011 we toured a fast-moving and accessible adaptation of Romeo and Juliet, continuing our 12 year partnership with The Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts.
As a partnership, we have delivered a range of successful Shakespeare productions in both Primary and Secondary Schools.
The play is abridged and staged in a modern context. Although, the play is abridged, we do not stray from the traditional Shakespearian text.
The modern context of the play allows easy accessibility to students, while also giving them the opportunity to draw from the diverse performance elements.
We have always received excellent feedback from similar productions in previous years and did so once again during this tour.

Building on the success of last year’s similar project, The Complete Works once again worked in conjunction with University College London to deliver a five week long, short filmmaking workshop. This took place on Saturday mornings with several groups of young people.
The Project had been developed to broaden the horizons of the young people taking part with each individual group given the opportunity to write, create and star in their own short films, with the help of our project facilitators Henry and Dan.
The groups involved chose to make films about various educational subjects while on the UCL campus including; addressing the decision of whether or not to go to University, and what could be on offer when a decision has been made.
The films created were then taken back to the editing suite at The Complete Works and edited using the production notes and storyboards created by the students themselves.
On the final Saturday of the project, the finished films were then shown to all the young people involved and each participant was given a copy of their film to take home.
