This year's London Summer Camp show title is: RESISTANCE 

The last remaining elders of the Iceni tribe gather round the fire, in secret protest against the Roman occupation of ancient Britain. They have come to resist the most powerful empire the western world has ever seen, in the most powerful way they know: to tell the stories of their ancestors and to keep the flame alive. Weaving history with modern fairytales, new heroes will arise in an epic fantasy where you become the creators of your own stories. Ensemble movement and mad musicality combine to create a beautiful and enchanting performance experience that invites the audience into a world of new tales.
