THEATRE OF MIGRATION
This event took place on 12 October 2023 at Trinity Centre, Bristol.
Join community artists Carlota Matos and Hiba Elhindi for a discussion about the ethics of working with migrants in theatre, chaired by Vandna Mehta.
The evening will include a sharing from ongoing theatre workshops with migrant women in collaboration with Borderlands and a screening of the work being done by project SuFIA (Sudanese Folklore-Inspired Arts) by Hiba. The 45-min panel discussion will feature topics such as the ethics of participation, making theatre from lived experience and working with migrants followed by a Q&A.
Carlota recently partnered with Bristol-based charity Borderlands to offer free weekly theatre workshops for migrant women starting in September 2023. This participatory theatre project addresses language barriers and explores identity and what it means to be a woman in different cultures.
Doors will open at 6.15PM and the event will start promptly at 6.30PM. Refreshments will be provided. Please note there won’t be any alcohol served.
