Adah Kay Memorial Commission(Ongoing)
With support from the MSN Fund, ice&fire have established the Adah Kay Memorial Commission. This fund aims to build on Adah’s legacy with ice&fire, using theatre as a means to communicate some of the most important and under-represented stories.
The prize fund will be awarded annually (over five years) to a theatre maker and an expert witness (an academic with field experience/social researcher/rights defender/survivor) to create an original play that examines a contemporary human rights issue.
The 2018 commission is a theatrical response to Jason Hickel’s The Divide, looking at how and why global inequality persists and grows. Jason is working with ice&fire as the expert witness on this project.
