18 Years: a theatrical tribute to Clays Lane
Bethnal Green Library
A performance conceived by Adelita Husni Bey and Dexter Hoonamansingh. Dexter lived at the Clays Lane housing co-operative for 18 years and acts as himself in this production; yet this theatrical tribute is more than a collection of memories adapted to the stage, it is an in-depth analysis of what constitutes a housing co-operative and how its principles are rooted in a reality far removed from what has come to replace Clays Lane in 2012. (Following the performance on Tuesday 14th August, guests are invited to attend the opening of the Clays Lane Live Archive exhibition at Supplement, a short walk from Bethnal Green Library).
