Participants go to "Black" at the MAC

Taking a break from the workshops, over 30 participants from the Secret City attended 20 Stories High's production "Black" at the MAC on the 4th of February. The powerful play that digs deep at the heart of racial tensions in the UK today, and something pertinent in Northern Ireland today. The play addressed the issue head on, with no holds barred, emphasising the power of theatre, and inspiring the young people on the Secret City Project to look at different ways of presenting their stories, sharing their voices. For a lot of the young people it was their first time to the theatre, and in many cases it challenged the way in which they perceive what theatre is, and what it can do.
