20B with Jane English

jane_website

Jane English is a performer, facilitator and emerging theatre-maker, from the UK. Over the past two years Jane has been developing a body of work which stems around the themes of home, community and belonging.

20B unearths the stories of a demolished building on a council estate in East London. In an
attempt to reconnect with her sense of home, Jane goes on a mission to find and reconnect
with her former neighbours, to document their memories, and make a record of the
community which was scattered by regeneration. Part auto-biography, part oral history, 20B
is a moving exploration of what home and community really mean and how it feels when

these things are lost. With warmth and humour, Jane uncovers the narratives of London, from post-war slum clearance to Olympic-era gentrification.
