The phone vibrates…a message…times, numbers, deals…and a warning. All in code. So young and so troubled. At home, in school, on the street. There’s no way out - is there?

CODE, Justice in Motion’s urban odyssey into County Lines and Knife Crime, is a spectacular blend of physical theatre, parkour and trials bike stunts with live rap and music. On an urban playground, skilled athletes and performers show what is happening to our young people exploited by organised drug crime gangs.

This story could be happening right now. See inside the County Lines through up-close, dazzling, adrenaline-fuelled, audacious story-telling inspired by true case studies.

This show is being brought to Reading by the Community Safety Partnership and Safer Streets 4. It is supported by Reading Borough Council, Dance Reading and Reading Football Club as a continuation of ‘Olly’s Work’, started with the Armoured Heart earlier this year. This sculpture was created in partnership with young people to raise awareness of the dangers of carrying a knife.
