Brighton Dome & Brighton Festival’s Miss Represented project operates as an arts collective working with vulnerable young women who are navigating difficult life situations and are considered at risk. Using the arts as a vehicle for self expression and investigating relevant themes and topics, Miss Represented creates a safe environment to deliver tailor made projects resulting in exhibitions, events or performances of high artistic quality.
Recently, the Miss Represented girls had the opportunity to meet with multi-award winning artist Plan B, an English rapper, songwriter, actor and film director from Forest Gate, London. Plan B first emerged as a hip hop artist, releasing his critically acclaimed debut album Who Needs Actions When You Got Words in 2006.
The girls spent a fantastic day in the studio with Plan B, writing lyrics and melody, practicing their performance and getting an insight into music production.Have a listen to Miss Rep's brilliant collaboration with this multi-award winning artist here:
Miss Represented will be presenting their latest project Home:Life on Thu 23, Fri 24 and Sat 25 Jul. Home:Life is an intriguing installation featuring live performance; political, imaginative social commentary, and personal explorations investigating Home and all that it might, or might not, encompass - the challenges of navigating a system that can help but also hinder.
What constitutes power and who should have it? Does everyone deserve a second chance? How do we manage our emotions and what does it take to reach from negative to positive thought and intention, especially when it feels like the world is judging?
