In our book. This is Youth Work, one of the stories focuses on the use and impact of the ‘stop and search’ tactic by the police upon young people. As we know this issue was at the heart of the unrest, which triggered last year’s riots – see The Police had it Coming.
We’ve just received notice from Munir Mohammed, a youth worker with SE1 United, who is looking to use dance as a medium for raising further the dilemmas.
Basically I need people to get involved in a Flashmob I am organising “Stop and Search Yourself” : A dance/performance about the issue of stop and search.
The display itself is a special designed Flashmob ,with a street dance routine of the ”routine check” as it were (so we’ll look somewhat ‘cool’) doing it as well :)…..and its really simple !! The music we’re doing this to is a mix of: Krs1 ” Sound of the police”, Michael Jackson “beat it” as well as the Mitchell brothers ”Routine check” …so this will be a lot fun 🙂 . Nevertheless the message will remain visually clear!!
Please circulate – contact Munira at firstname.lastname@example.org
