Things We Do Not Know at SPACE

“I’m Ellie”
“I’m Layla”
“I’m Kez”
Together: “We’re Process Theatre!”

What is Things We Do Not Know?

Layla: “Things We Do Not Know is a project we’ve been doing for about 5 years. It started just as a theatre piece, like us doing monologues of the women’s stories, singing a bit… But then over the years it’s really grown into an art exhibition as well and it’s a way for us to work with and for One25.”

Ellie: “I don’t know what it is to experience some of the things that the women who we’re talking about and the women who access One25’s services experience. I don’t know that…”

Layla: “We do have shared emotions just not necessarily shared experiences

Ellie: “There’s so many things from each human to human that we have no clue about”

And why Process Theatre?

Ellie: “We’re not experts, we’re artists, and we’re crafting it together”

Layla: “Yeah that’s why there’s so much on the walls that the audience can do and be involved with”

What are we going to see?

Kez: “We sort of start with information about the charity and statistics about the women and what they’ve been through and the kind of people that One25 help”

Layla: “We’ve got extracts from the show and the monologues we’ve read.”

Ellie: “The voices are the actors in the company but all of the words belong to the women whose stories that they’re telling.”

Layla: “They can engage with us graffiti-ing women’s names and then ultimately people end up with work created by women who access the services of One25 and that’s like – the pinnacle of it”

Ellie: And then you’ve got another little reflection point which goes really well with the beautiful mirror that one of the women has made”

Kez: “People are able to kind of reflect on… maybe how am I treated by society? What is my body worth? What would I like to be worth? And what are some people in society considered to be worth?”

Kez: “I think you’ll leave feeling hopeful”

Layla: “I think I can guarantee a feeling of warmth inside. I think it’s a beautiful journey. And there’ll be music… performances… and lots of lovely little extras”
