Flashmob justice for New Cross

Christiana writes:

And…Cross! is a choreographic Flashmob designed to give the power back to the pedestrians in New Cross against the tyranny of the A2. Humorous and visually strong, this event was imagined especially for the area and will be performed as part of NEW X-ING Performance Relay on Saturday the 29th of September.

We need to gather as many enthusiastic pedestrians as possible living, studying and/or working in the area. Performance and art background welcome but NOT necessary! Anyone with a desire to make a difference in New Cross welcomed.

A few rehearsals will take place in Fordham Park during the week leading up to the event. The aim is to share the material and structure with the participants and to build a strong group dynamic.

If you are interested in joining us for this very special march, please contact deboradicenta@yahoo.it or anga.thiriot@gmail.com

New Crossers can get exercised by any suggestion that the A2's course through their patch is especially problematic, but it is undeniably a physical and psychological barrier to the cohesive development of the town centre. So it's good to see the issue being highlighted.
