Team Spirit Tour 2009
Team Spirit – an interactive new play by Nnenna Samson
Kensal House, Tricycle Theatre, Dalgarno Community Centre, Lancaster Youth Centre and Chelsea Youth Centre, August 2011
Directed by Nnenna Samson
Assistant Director Marianna
Team Spirit by Nnenna Samson is about a group of young people who have come together to dream their own part in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics. This play takes the Olympic mission to ‘Get More People Into Sport’ seriously, as audience members are invited to participate in community sports classes between scenes!
This exciting free show, inspired by the young people, performed at 4 West London venues over a period of just 5 days. Each venue was transformed into a sports centre, and audiences enjoyed table tennis, yoga, volleyball and high-energy dance routines, as well as an uplifting drama about the triumph of friendship and teamwork in the face of great personal obstacles.
Team Spirit started life as a SPID show at Kensal House in 2009, and was improved and revived with help from SPID’s professional writers and directors, to give our young company a chance to step up their skills and experience a full-time rehearsal period and demanding tour schedule including performance at the Tricycle Theatre.
