Unleash the Aftermath

It has been nearly 2 months since the London Riots affected London like the plague. The scenes of anarchy, destruction and immorality were unbelievable. People’s lives were destroyed in all in a number of hours.

The chaos that overshadowed London, was a clear indication that the, youths, working classes, unemployed, employed, mothers, fathers, people......all types of people, were angry.

However the Media chose to show footage which clearly led to the assumption that most of the people involved within the riots were of Black African/ Black Caribbean ethnicity.  This only encouraged some people to label the riots as a ‘Black thing’:

"The whites have become black. A particular sort of violent destructive, nihilistic gangster culture has become the fashion and black and white, boy and girl, operate in this language together.
"Its language which is wholly false, which is this Jamaican patois that has been intruded in England and that is why so many of us have this sense of literally a foreign country."
"It's not skin colour, it's cultural. Listen to [Tottenham's Labour MP] David Lammy, an archetypal successful black man. If you turn the screen off so that you are listening to him on radio you would think he was white." – David Starkey, Newsnight 13th August 2011.
The London Riots was an unfortunate effect of a cause, a cause which some may say is the effect of an Upper class, old school boy -Conservative Government.
In order to understand the extent in which communities were damaged by the riots, Golden Delilah and Fragments took the streets of Hackney, East London on Saturday 20th August 2011. Although the London Riots affected all walks of lives, we chose to shed light on the opinions of Black women, women who play a strong role in shaping the black youths of today but politically their opinions are hardly acknowledged. 

Please find below a link to Aftermath, a documentary of the after effects of the London Riots:

Aftermath - Project X

Hey Goldie’s!,

We hope you enjoyed the last weeks of August, dancing at the Notting Hill Carnival or perhaps soaking up the sun rays in a tropical country? Either way, we’re sure you have rested well over the summer, because the Autumn and Winter months are going to be busy!


British Theatre is at its best  right now, there are so many great theatres contributing brilliant plays to ensure that there is some light during the dark Autumn,  Winter months.  Of course Golden Delilah has been brightening up the stages and discovering London’s best kept secret stages for the past 3 years. So it is no surprise that we have been working away at the office on  TWO  projects  that are almost ready to unveil!

Aftermath: Golden Delilah in collaboration with Fragments Theatre will be presenting you with a documentary which expresses the aftermath of the London riots in Hackney. The London Riots affected all Londoners and was a shocking event, which caused a lot of Londoners to question their political views and their perception of young people.

The media chose to display footage which clearly lead to the assumption that majority of those involved in the riots, were of Black African and Black Caribbean heritage. An unfortunate fact or creative manipulation?
 Bearing this mind, Golden Delilah and Fragments Theatre took the streets of Hackney in search of the opinions of Hackney residents particularly residents of a black African/ Caribbean ethnicity, who were given the chance to have their voices heard.  As they play a strong role in the shaping the black youths of today.

 PROJECT X:  Golden Delilah will be hosting a series of forums that explores the identity of black women and the effect that social politics have on their lives, experiences and choices. The information collated from the forums will aid us in the development of our up and coming production Project X.  The next forum will be held on Thursday 6th October 2011. If you are interested in attending a Project X Forum, please see more details below:


More details of Project X and Aftermath will be posted on the GD blog within the next few weeks, so keep your eyes open and your 
ears closely to the ground!

The Aftermath

Golden Delilah and Fragments Theatre explored the aftermath of the recent London riots from Black women from the communities perspective on Sat 20 August, Dalston, Hackney.

 It was extremely inspirational and refreshing to hear London views, on recent events that have occured. 

So what was the reason for Golden Delilah and Fragments theatre taking to the streets of Dalston?

As always, Golden Delilah explores different opinions and truths about social political events. Being a theatre company, which focuses on issues that affect women, we are researching black women's opinions on the riots.

The media has chosen to display footage which clearly leads to the assumption that majority of those involved, were of Black African and Black Caribbean heritage. An unfortunate fact or creative manipulation?

Golden Delilah and Fragments Theatre are currently producing a production which will hopefully shed some light on the above through the opinions of black women, women who play a strong role in shaping the black youths of today but have very little power politically! 
Keep an eye on this blog, as more news to follow.

Tierra Firme - Social Political Theatre.


Golden Delilah was recently sent an email from our friend Yuri Pirondi, who has embarked on a new adventure to document the injustice in the South American countries. Yuri is in a team of Independent Documentary Film makers who are passionate about the power of film and theatre to inspire, move, educate and initiating positive social change. Yes, there are still people who would like to change the world... gently of course!

 Like Africa, Latin America is a continent that has been tussled and torn by political unrest, poverty, lack of education and violence.  Social Political Theatre plays an extremely important role in healing wounds, allowing people's voices to be heard, and in initiating a positive social change.  It is an incredibly effective tool to educate and initiate life-changing shifts in the consciousness and lives of the people involved.

As a theatre company we can not even begin to describe how powerful theatre can be particularly within countries whose futures are not clear. Theatre is a tool to allow one, to describe and express a world in which they would like to live in or a world they are trying to escape.
