Breathing Fire is currently looking forward to when we can resume our normal activities. In the meantime we await the government’s directive for when the arts sector can return to devising, producing and performing work and providing services to, and with, the communities we serve.
During this challenging and unprecedented time our thoughts are with all those throughout the UK and around the globe who have been affected by the coronavirus and with those who have lost family members, friends or colleagues. We, like many, are concerned about the disproportionate number of BAME people who have been adversely affected by covid-19 and those who have sadly passed. We will be keen to understand the findings relating to this and accompanying strategies to address race inequality.
Linked with the above is the campaign for Black Lives Matter: . Breathing Fire is fully in support of the call for tangible action throughout all services that will achieve race equality and ultimately ensure equality exists for all communities, groups and individuals in every aspect of everyone’s lives.
Playback Theatre is a unique form of interactive theatre enabling audiences to tell their stories.
Playback theatre is a safe way of exploring internal thought processes and using the arts to express and communicate.
People from the audience are invited to share moments from their lives.
They then see them being brought to life as the company immediately recreates the essence of their story using voice, movement, dance, music and song.
Breathing Fire made some major changes having decided to restructure the organisation. A number of the group left us. We really appreciated and valued the journey we had together with these former members and wish them every success in their various future endeavours. We are exploring a future structure and are excited about this including recruitment of new members as there has not been an opportunity for women to join the group since our last recruitment in 2010. The process is being overseen by Breathing Fire’s business group and we are really pleased to have involvement from founding members of Breathing Fire to support our plans.
We are available for performances and workshops as usual – so please do get in touch!
