What Does It Take? 2007



What Does it Take? is a creative collaboration involving the lyricists Tamsin Kayembe and first time script writer Darren Goode. The title and the inspiration for the play came from a lyrical piece created by Phoenix, called What Does It Take, performed in Second Wave's Platform Event in 2007.

The choreography, original songs and sound track for the production were created and devised in collaboration with
Tori Taiwo, Aaron Augustus, Tope Omowale, Kloe Dean and Joel Fender. The visuals for the production such as grafitti artwork, costume-making, photography, film and projection, was created by young people working alongside set designer Diana Pinto, costume designer Wai Yin Kwok, photographer Sarah Ainslie, and grafitti artist Jamie Lawrence.

In Deptford two families hold a long time grudge. When young people from opposite sides fall in love, war is declared. When a rival gets hurt, do you stand by your friends or stand alone? Do you have what it takes to face up...to be real?
When respect is on the line – who controls your fate, is it love or is it hate?
What does it take to be real...to lose face...to face up. The front’s gone – only true pictures get drawn. And at the end of the day only real people get mourned.

Original lyrics by PhoenixThis production is dedicated to young people who are working to reduce youth on youth violence on our streets and in our neighbourhoods, and brings it to the attention of a wider community audience.
