CAN is delighted to be presenting 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 explore Iranian women’s narratives. The third piece, Candyfloss explores the struggle to engage in a new country and new culture.

The REACT festival will explore 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 will come together to share their learning about making theatre with refugees. They will be 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 will begin 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. This will be 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.

After lunch, the afternoon sessions will include practical and conversation workshops, as well as matinee performances.
Everyone will come back together at actacentre for dinner each evening, followed by a premiere performance of an original show in the actacentre theatre.

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).

Festival passes (includes refreshments, lunch and dinner) from £25.
