QUARTERS KIDS

 


Performed by Students of the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy

As a development of 'Portland Stories', the QUARTERS KIDS project gathered stories and anecdotes from the families of prison officers, past and present, who had lived in accommodation at the Verne or Borstal prisons on Portland. Absolute again collaborated with the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy, recording interviews to be added to the Portland Stories collection - which formed the basis of a site-specific piece, created by Peter Cann, Simon Fraser and IPACA students.

Quarters Kids was performed at the Borstal Officers Club and Governor's Garden, The Grove.
