LCP Dance Theatre would like to invite you to a performance of a new dance production AM I successfully premiered in Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013. It is inspired by the real story of a victim of human trafficking Sophie Hayes, the author of ‘TRAFFICKED’ Sunday Times Bestseller.

We are a not for profit organisation which brings awareness of violated human rights through performing arts, using multimedia, dance and movement to tell the story. Our latest remarkable achievement is the BBC Performing Arts Award 2011 for the dance production of ‘Rights(?)’. In a last few years LCP successfully performed in Fringe Festivals in the UK.
Considering that there are 27 million cases of trafficked victims forced to work illegally, imprisoned, physically and mentally abused, only 1% of it is rescued and start a new life. The rest either continue the slavery or return to it. In face of such a high rate of people’s slavery and such a small number of survivors, we can only prevent it from happening.
Therefore the aim of LCP Dance Theatre is not only to send the message of this terrific reality to everyone who potentially could be in a targeted group of victims but also to work with the victims directly, by using the movement therapy and get them engaged with a choreographic process of performing arts we are creating. We are associated with Sophie Hayes Foundation which supports victims of trafficking in the UK.
As we are a self-funded organisation likely working with such a committed volunteers who identify with our purpose and gratefully having residency at LESOCO (Lewisham&Southwark College in London) we believe that by talking through the movement and multimedia live performance, working with the targeted group of victims, we can make changes and motivate others to do the same by joining us in this manifest against violated human rights.
For more information about the company and human trafficking based dance project please do not hesitate to contact us.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
