World Cities: Public House - Open Air Screening
Sun 21 August 2016, 20:00 – 22:00 BST
Public House is a creative telling of community resistance and testament to our love of a good old local boozer.
In 2012, the Ivy House pub in Peckham was sold to property developers as part of the ongoing gentrification of South London.
But the locals were not going to let their beloved pub disappear. Registered as the first Asset of Community Value in the UK, The Ivy was triumphantly saved, and this genre-blending documentary tells the story as an exhilarating participatory opera. Dance, poetry and song are woven with verbatim testimony to form an enthralling cacophonous soundscape.
