Inspirational Riots

We have all seen the pictures and imagers splashed across the media in regards to last summers riots. Why did this happen? How did this happen? How can something so national and widespread involve the individual and be taken so out of context? Not only are these questions asked in relation to last summers riots but can be related to our performance. Taking the riots into consideration using as inspiration allows us to see the path which individuals travel along when they are out of control. Many people involved in the riots didn’t have a clue as to why they were doing this but went along with it anyway believing they were right. In addititon we looked into how people would use any excuse to justify looting and violence which would later be incorporated into our performance. In relation to our performance we wanted to include aspects of society and when looking deeper into the riots I believe that the individual will do anything in order to survive as it has been proven. Due to the current climate we are living in it is a struggle for individuals to life so many people are turning to a life of crime to justify their existence, just as my character has proven. However, in the performance pictures was used from the riots to get the audience in the right mood to support my characters actions.
