CAN was delighted to present three solo theatre pieces made by international theatre-makers, Fereshteh Mozaffari, Mahboobeh Rajabi and Emmanuel Bajiiji as part of the REACT Festival. The first two pieces, One More Push and Dancing the Lash explored Iranian women’s narratives. The third piece, Candyfloss explored the struggle to engage in a new country and new culture.

The REACT festival investigated the significance of community theatre for the integration of refugees & asylum seekers with host communities across Europe. The three REACT project partners from Bristol, Rotterdam and Palermo came together to share their learning about making theatre with refugees. They were joined by theatre companies and practitioners, academics and students for a series of workshops and conversations, as well as six new refugee theatre shows.

Each morning began with a morning-after conversation to discuss the show seen the night before, with an opportunity to ask questions and to hear more from the performers and directors. They were followed by a presentation from one of the three REACT partners, each with a different model, taking an in depth look at how they approached making refugee theatre in their country.

The afternoon sessions included practical and conversation workshops, as well as matinee performances.

Workshops, talks and shows from – Good Chance, Phosphoros Theatre, Citizens Theatre Glasgow, Community Arts North West (CAN), Catrin Evans, PAN Intercultural Arts, Rewrite, acta (Bristol), Rotterdams Wijktheater (Holland) and Centro per lo Sviluppo Creativo Danilo Dolci (Sicily).
