Students at Buckinghamshire New University are to take to the stage and shine a light on human trafficking and child prostitution at Wycombe Town Hall for the production TRADED.
Contemporary jazz theatre company EIC Dance Theatre is working with the University’s creative students for an interdisciplinary performance on Tuesday 17 November at the Wycombe Town hall.
TRADED saw students and lecturers from the performing arts, dance, film and fashion courses collaborate with each other under the guidance of Sara Dos Santos to highlight this important social issue!
EIC Dance Theatre creates thought-provoking productions that raise awareness of social and political issues. The company’s current production, Frontline, is inspired by an outreach project to Brazil and raises awareness against human trafficking and child prostitution.
Sara Dos Santos, of EIC Dance Theatre, says: "TRADED is an experimental theatre performance, encompassing a heart-breaking yet playful experience where participants can explore this taboo and fast-growing mystery. Through the use of digital media, live performance and dance, we tap into characters’ inner thoughts while becoming witnesses of real life scenarios that are often overlooked.”
Dance and Performing Arts students at Bucks New University will be performing, with parts also played by members of the students’ Performing Arts Society, and the project is supported by Bucks Students’ Union. A BA (Hons) Fashion Design student is responsible for costumes and set design, with a BA (Hons) Film and Television Production student also contributing to the material being performed.
Doors open at 7pm on 17 November. Tickets are £3 for students and £5 for adults. The ticket office is on 01494 512 000.
