According to an old article in Time magazine, “Millennials are lazy entitled narcissists who still live with their parents.” Harsh!
Well, the Albany Theatre Young Creatives address that statement and more in a journey through the life of millennials in a show called Move, Shake, Mango.
The show promises a night of contemporary dance, spoken word and music. The performance addresses the lack of political engagement and the apathy of millennials. Millennials are people born from 1980 to 2000. They are said to be disappointed in the current political landscape and I’m interested to see how Move, Shake, Mango explores this topic.
Young Creatives is a programme designed for young people interested in producing, performing, technical theatre or international exchange. This is a two-month programme that culminates with a show at the Lewisham Live Festival.
Sounds exciting! Whether you agree or disagree with the statement from Time magazine, Move, Shake, Mango is an opportunity to see talented young people from Lewisham perform and hear the other side of the story.
Move, Shake, Mango will be at the Albany, Deptford on 1 April at 7.70pm. Tickets cost £5 (£3 concessions) and are available from the Albany website.
