What's On



June 2018

We will be delivering a series of performances in the South West focused on refugee and asylum seeking communities in support of Refugee Week.


May – June 2018

Members of Breathing Fire have been conducting research on trauma in relation to the experiences of migrant communities. Findings from our individual research will be used to inform our interactions with audiences and the creativity expressed in our up and coming performances.
