Absolute Beginners archiveRoy Williams, Soweto Kinch and dance theatre director Liam Steel join forces to create an explosively physical evocation of sexual liberalism, gang culture and racial tension, based on Colin MacInnes' bestseller Absolute Beginners. Set in the summer of 1958 that ends with the Notting Hill race riots, Absolute Beginners paints a vivid picture of London's changing society and the emergence of a style-conscious youth culture, as teenagers blow away the cobwebs of post-war life and create the world anew. Not recommended for under 14s
Performers Sid Mitchell, Joanne Matthews, James Clyde, Micah Balfour, Tom Stuart, Rachel Sanders, Richard Frame, David Sibley, Darren Hart, Tosin Olomowewe.
