FAST MOVING CONSUMABLES happened opposite Ladbroke Grove Station and at The Victoria and Albert Museum.

We played to, and with, over 8000 audience on their way to work as our story, that developed over five consecutive days between 8:30-9:30 am, followed two heroes in their quest for meaning inside and outside the modern world of work.  Each day's performance was accompanied by a specially designed, live streamed soundscape that audiences could listen to on their smart phones and you can hear below.

 

It was commissioned by The Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea  as part of InTRANSIT Festival 2015.  The project partnered with local employment support charity, The Clement James Centre, interviewing its service users about their experiences of unemployment

 

The whole event was accompanied by live streaming audio designed for the show that could be accessed on smart phones.
