Book a performance new
We can perform at any time across the UK and normally perform in non-traditional venues, such as town halls, community spaces, workplaces, conference rooms, schools and universities.
We ask organisations booking a performance to ensure there is an audience of at least 50 people. If your audience is likely to be smaller than this, please let us know and we can discuss alternatives.
A huge variety of organisations all over the UK (and internationally) have hosted our performances since the project launched in 2006. Some examples include Student Action for Refugees, Barrow Cadbury Trust, Save the Children, British Red Cross, European Council on Refugees and Exiles, Housing Justice, several local councils and NHS Trusts, Southbank Centre, The Cooperative Membership, The UK Border Agency, Index on Censorship, English PEN, The Association of Charitable Foundations, The Commonwealth Secretariat, as well as multiple schools, universities and church, community and campaigning groups.
We are also able to offer workshops and presentations alongside the rehearsed readings & Q&A for an additional fee of £100:
Asylum Mapping Participatory Workshop:
Through creative participation and teamwork, this workshop will give participants an opportunity to understand step by step the complexities of the UK asylum seeking process and the challenges people face as they navigate it in order to gain legal status.
Duration: 45mins – 1hr
Max 50 ppl
Requires large floor space or up to 5 large tables
Verbatim Theatre and ice&fire’s Theatre practices Presentation:
A presentation on a variety of verbatim theatre practice and practitioners and the history and development of ice&fires theatre practice and the ethics of working with verbatim theatre.
Duration: 30mins – 45 mins
Requires screen/projector for powerpoint presentation
In order to ensure that we can continue to bring our work at no charge to unfunded groups around the country, we ask that funded organisations make a contribution, where possible on a sliding scale.
£550 is the standard fee for a rehearsed reading and facilitated Q&A panel discussion for funded educational entities, arts venues and NGOs (+ travel costs if outside of M25, which we will keep to a minimum) and goes up for corporate and for-profit organisations depending on their annual income. These events are free for unfunded groups but we ask you that you cover travel costs and provide food/refreshments for the actors.
If cost is a barrier please do get in touch to discuss – we are always willing to find a way to make an Actors For Human Rights event happen!
