Hosted by BandBazi, with special guest artists from Platforma
Future/History will bring together BandBazi’s inclusive, multicultural youth group with refugee artists from across the Southeast of England in a multi-artform performance event. BandBazi Youth Circus Theatre will present their own interpretation of the Asylum Monologues, followed by Platforma’s showcase celebrating artists and performers of refugee origin. This evening of exciting and compelling theatre, music and art is not to be missed.
Originally devised and presented by ice&fire theatre, the Asylum Monologues is a first-hand account of the UK’s asylum system in the words of people who have experienced it. Performed by young people from Brighton and Hove and young refugees and asylum seekers, BandBazi YCT’s Asylum Monologues will see the original testimonies infused with the group’s own unique brand of circus and physical theatre.
Platforma South East presents an amazing showcase of artists and performers, featuring the inspirational Lucky Moyo as MC (Uzambesi, and founder member of the pioneering Black Umfolosi), acclaimed Iranian exiled poet Ali Abdolrezaei, digital artist Hong Damm (Vietnam), and silver voiced Senegalese singer Kahadim Sarr to complete the bill.
