What's On

 

 

 

February 2018  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An Arts Council funded Washington DC tour in partnership with

Playback Theater sistah company Hissing Black Cat.

 

We will be partnering with our Washington DC based sister company,

Hissing Black Cat to deliver four playback performances and we are

pleased to have made links with a High School and a Women’s writing

group to deliver two additional performances.

 

We look forward to performing again with our sisters in Hissing Black

Cat on our reciprocal visit following on from their joining us on our

UK tour in 2016.

 

February is Black History Month in the USA and we can benefit

from our interactions with communities and people especially around

the way Black History Month is celebrated and acknowledged in

America. We will be performing in a range of settings to different

community groups. We will aim to honour our audiences with  their

stories on issues, experiences and moments that are most relevant to

them and their cultural perspectives.

 

We are keen to further develop our own skills, knowledge and experience and to widen our repertoire by taking the opportunity to learn and grow from the range of stories shared and themes explored during our performances, workshops and practices, and through our training with Hissing Black Cat.
