ANCHORED IN LONDON

The Anchored in London Project was set up by Tom McDonough in collaboration with Trikhon Theatre. The project was designed to capture the real life stories of those who survived the Vietnam war and their off spring. Through this project many first and second generation Vietnamese were brought together and encouraged to talk and share their concerns for the first time, helping to bridge the gap between them. Participants had an active role in conducting interviews, transcribing, editing and designing the material - all the while being gathered around a dinning table with a hot bowl of Pho. The work accumulated in the produce of a DVD, booklet, website and exhibition. With Trikhon's delicate blend of event design and theatre, the company produced the projects final exhibition at he House Gallery Cafe in Camberwell.
