It’s 10 years since Justice in Motion first started making ground breaking performances about social justice. As we come to the end of this anniversary year we are celebrating our achievements with an exciting, interactive exhibition at the place where it all started – The Old Fire Station in Oxford.

10 Years in Motion features the ten productions created so far, using props, costumes, sections of theatre set, photographs, videos, music, soundscapes, activities and events to bring our history to life.

The shows we have made involved physical and immersive theatre, aerial acrobatics, parkour, dance, storytelling, music, soundscapes, video and film, and most recently trials bikes and live rap. Each created a finely etched memory in the minds of our audiences and this exhibition will do the same. Viewers will be invited to explore the space, the objects and environments with all of their senses.

★★★★★ ‘Like nothing I’ve ever seen.’ – Quaere Living

★★★★ Despair and compassion with moving brilliance.’ – Oxford Times

Alongside the exhibition is a programme of events and activities that share the stories we are passionate about, often featuring creative friends and partners from past productions.

Come join in the fun and celebrate with us!
