The unfolding story of a collective assault on the culture of fear and cynicism that pervades urban city streets.
We meet at the theatre. Perhaps we might get a glimpse of something precious in the world around us? Maybe we will find out how to be more joyful in the city...
Each performance will be different as we remake the streets together.

Street Training is an emergent 21st century Martial Art. It's a way of rethinking the ways we walk down the street which requires commitment and sustained practice and encompasses the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of being. Street Training teaches that, by focusing our thoughts and behaviour, we can have an effect on our surroundings equal to that which our surroundings exert upon us. As changes take place within the street trainer they also take place in the streets.

Street Training is the art of safely and joyfully exploring ourselves and the spaces we inhabit. A form of participatory performance, it evolves interactively in relation to the physical, social and mental structures that make up the city.
