We are terribly excited to be working on our latest piece, Every Way Up has its Way Down, which will be presented at Rich Mix in Shoreditch on the 12th of July.
We had a great shoot with Alicia Clarke (who you may have noticed is a frequent nylon collaborator!) back on a very, very cold (in fact, snowy) February afternoon. We shot in multiple locations down Brick Lane, situating ourselves at the heart of the old Jewish quarter of the East End. The piece explores our shared Jewish background, and how we have found ourselves (and each other) in London, a city where the footsteps of many immigrants continue to ripple through our daily consciousness. We explore our own histories alongside those of the many historical Jewish immigrants who once trod the same streets as we now do, and look to question whether a sense of belonging can be found, as much in a strange city, as in a familiar culture.

We will share the evening with performance group Portmanteau, and the evening will form part of Rich Mix’s ‘Stories of London’ season, which runs throughout 2013.
