Fragments – 3rd June 2021

Fragments: An online evening of theatre from refugees in Berkshire

Thursday 3rd June | 7:00pm – 8:30pm | Online Premiere

Watch live here: https://www.facebook.com/readingrefugees/live/

Join us online for an evening of raw, funny and original theatre, written and performed by a team of talented refugees.

Fragments is a moving series of filmed theatre pieces, each telling a different story written and performed by asylum seekers and refugees living in Berkshire.

The six short films cover are an exciting and emotional mix, everything from mental health and life during a pandemic, to persecution and the UK asylum system, that is sure to entertain.

The films will be premiered during the online event, before BBC Radio 3’s Fiona Talkington hosts a Live Q&A Panel with the performers to discuss their stories and the themes they touch upon.

Inspired by The Living Newspaper street theatre movement, Fragments was entirely written, performed and professionally recorded during the most recent COVID-19 Lockdown, made possible by funding from Arts Council England.

Fragments is presented by Reading Refugee Support Group and Rank & File Theatre.

Fragments: The news is breaking, right here, right now.

Jude Haste, Director of Rank & File Theatre said:

‘These are real stories, from real people and they are so powerful. Each of the different pieces taps into something a totally different experience, but they all share the common thread of humanity – with hopes, struggles and overcoming challenges. I just cannot wait for everyone to see them and fall in love with them like I have!’

Tickets to Fragments are free, though donations to Reading Refugee Support Group are welcomed to help refugees and asylum seekers living in Berkshire.
