Part of Dazed New World Festival 2020
Presented by Applecart Arts
Winner of Applecart Arts' SEEDs competition, Julia Szajkowska's 'One Shot' asks what way out would you take?
Performed by Warren Mendy and Directed by Prashant Nagar, this thought provoking performance was performed and filmed in Applecart Arts' Littlewood Theatre space as the UK began to emerge from Lockdown.
Produced by Will Alder and Peter Moreton
Curated by Darrel Draper
Julia Szajkowska on One Shot:
"The story is set in a dystopian era, where those from more economically deprived areas are shown only certain pathways they can take to benefit the media and such industries, inspired by the fact that the education system needs to do a better job at showing more options for young people than “go to university and be a lawyer or doctor or be a failure, unless you can make it in sports or in the media”. I also wanted to address how the media often requires people to portray a certain image to truly succeed as well as the pressures and stereotypes this induces in communities."
