The Good Neighbour

In collaboration with Lewis Gibson.

Uninvited Guests returned to Battersea Arts Centre as part of of The Good Neighbour from 13 October to 4 November 2012.

We created a theatrical guided tour of Battersea for adults, who became an improbable brass band that spilled out onto the streets. Intrepid Explorers who joined the procession were taken to places where Battersea's radical past collides with the present.

This is a story of two fires separated by 100 years, based on accounts from local people of bravery, kindness and radical thinking.

BAC's The Good Neighbour offered an experience for all different ages, from toddlers to grandparents. As well as our version for over 14s, which took audiences down Lavender Hill, into cafes and a solicitor's office, there were also journeys for 0-5 and 6-12 year olds.

An audio tour was adapted from the original live commission.
