The year so far…
Actors for Human Rights continues to grow and reach audiences all over the country. So far in 2016 we’ve been to Manchester, Warwick, Brighton, Derbyshire, Hertfordshire and various London locations.
July and August is festival season! We will be: premiering a new Scottish version of Asylum Monologues at the Beyond Borders Festival at the Edinburgh Festival and Traquair House; running a workshop at the annual Greenbelt Festival in Kettering; and performing at Good Chance’s Encampment at Southbank Centre in August.
We will be running a weekend training workshop in June for our London-based Actors for Human Rights Residents, thanks to the generosity of the Greenbelt Trust and the Lipman-Miliband Trust, with a similar event in a regional hub later in the year.
Actors – make sure you’re signed up to our online social network to find out about casting for any upcoming Actors for Human Rights gigs.
We are also in the early stages of a collaboration with Freedom from Torture’s Write to Life group and composer/singer Ana Silvera, which will culminate in a performance at the Roundhouse on September 2.
