“So I have to go to college, choose courses to set me up for the rest of my life – and you have to decide that in Year 11 when you’re 15 – great!”

Fortuna is the story of four young women in the East London school system. Beginning at the 2012 Olympics, we follow the women across 10 years, from optimistic primary school dreamers to young adults in a global pandemic. Each must answer the delicate questions of Who am I? and Who do I want to be? while facing the pressures, responsibilities, and injustices of the British education system. It is an epic story of the many paths a life can take.

Fortuna was based on interviews conducted with young people between 2010 and 2022 and has been devised with students and performers connected to East London. It is in equal parts a nostalgia trip through 2010s Britain, a theatrical extravaganza, and an answer to the question – what is school really for?

More information on Fortuna can be found on the event website.

Fortuna was grown from the Trellis Programme hosted by UCL East and supported by Westfield East Bank Creative Futures Fund and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, and will be shown as part of Field Works, a free exhibition of collaborative artworks created from East London artists, communities, and UCL research.

More information available on the Trellis website.
