Tales from Body & Soul • • Spark
JEN WRITES: Exmouth Market Theatre is the home of Spark London’s Encore show – where we corral some of our favourite tales from all across the city. InÂ September,Â all of the storiesÂ cameÂ from right across the street.
In collaboration withÂ Body & SoulÂ charity, Spark put on a special show to recognise voices from our local community who supportÂ the respect, dignity and wellbeing of people affected by HIV.Â In the run-up to the event, SparkÂ spent a few weeks collaborating with Body & Soul’sÂ young adult programme. Inspired by the word ‘infectious’ we shared our personal memoriesÂ and workedÂ to cultivate our unique way of telling them.
All proceeds from the night went to Body & Soul, which have gone to support young adults affected by HIV.Â In recognition ofÂ WorldÂ AIDS Day, we’veÂ shared stories from our Body & SoulÂ night on our latest podcast episode. Check it out!
Thanks again to everyone who took part – withÂ special thanks to Adrina and the storytellers from Body & Soul for sharing the mic with us!
