Equilibrium Album Art on a polaroid

Broken Silence, an Inclusive Adult Drama Group based in Edmonton and part of Face Front Inclusive Theatre, has announced their newest production and album launch ‘Equilibrium’

The local company and charity create accessible theatre for disabled performers across the UK.

The story takes place on the fictional island of Hanalei and the surrounding waters, with the film focusing on how the world on land and the world below the sea must live in harmony for the natural Equilibrium to be restored.

Originally conceptualised as a theatre production, the prolonged impact of the pandemic meant that it could not be performed in the summer of 2021, as originally planned. As a result, Face Front built a full-size professional Green Screen Studio in their existing premises in Edmonton to turn this stage show into a film.

Maksym Stasiuk, an artist based in Ukraine, provided the wonderful background illustrations. At this time, Maksym’s family have fled to Italy, while he has stayed in Smila and is housing a family who have fled from Kyiv. As part of the launch of this film, we are attempting to raise funds to help Max and his family to be reunited.

Broken Silence is run by directors Jon French and Angie Wallis at Park Avenue Disability Resource Centre in the borough of Enfield. The group is made up of 25+ adults with sensory and mobility impairments, mental health issues and learning disabilities.

When asked about the production, a Co-Director Jon French commented, “The hard work, imaginative use of technology, incredible patience, enormous talent, and the desire to make something brilliant in an unprecedented and challenging environment was inspiring.”
