A site-specific theatre performance that investigated the intricacies of courage and honour, ritual and spectatorship.
Gloves On was staged at the Peacock Gym, world-renowned as the training ground of boxing champions. We experienced a riveting performance which took us into the world of boxing and its place in the British psyche.
LIFT also worked with the NEET young people who are part of the Peacock Gym Academy to help with stage management, front of house and also to perform in the show as young boxers.
Fantastic! Felt involved from the start.
The students were and are over the moon with what they have achieved. For them this is what education is all about!
