Homeless in Homeland - Sariyah Idan

Homeless in Homeland - Sariyah Idan

Description

What and where is home? Combining poetry, dance, and character monologue, Sariyah Idan conveys a young Jewish-American woman’s struggle to understand her identity, her family, justice and the meaning of home through the lens of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Idan’s portrayal of seventeen vibrant and diverse Americans, Palestinians, and Israelis, uncovers a new Middle East of grief, daily struggle, and humour. Homeless In Homeland is a solo show in a documentary hip-hop theatre aesthetic, based on a trip taken by the writer-performer to the State of Israel and occupied Palestine.

An ARC Stockton Cultural Shift Production

Written and Directed by Vici Wreford-Sinnott.  

BSL Interpreted Performance.

Beatrice, an unlikely heroine in a story of not-so-everyday survival, sits in isolation, waiting for the outcome of a forced mental health assessment. She loved Bowie, the Buzzcocks and the Bay City Rollers back in the day, and now revisits a personal history she only just remembers. But there is an important detail she has forgotten, and she thinks they are putting words into her mouth. Butterfly is not about suffering from, or surviving, a condition. It is about history, stigma, about misunderstandings and misrepresentations. This clever, funny, dark piece allows us to assess how we treat human beings in the 21st century.

Kicked in the Sh*tter - 5Pound5 Theatre, Saturday 6th May, 7.30pm

Description

By Leon Fleming Directed by Scott Le Crass

Depression. Sanctions. Anxiety. Self harm. Back to work. Substance Abuse. JSA. AA. ESA. FA. PIP. It’s grim out there. It’s grim everywhere.

Sibling love and sibling dependency; Kicked in the Sh*tter is a tale of brother and sister struggling to live with mental health issues amidst the labyrinthine wreckage of a decayed welfare state. This isn’t poverty porn; there’s nothing sexy about despair. A story of struggle and hope for the millions who fall through the cracks in Britain today and every day. Kicked in the Sh*tter comes from the team that created the five star, award nominated west end hit Sid.

Concession tickets available for state pensioners and University of Bradford staff members.

Description

At Theatre in the Mill, University of Bradford

Throughout Pauline’s life, people have made assumptions about her based on her gender, background and race. She’s defied these expectations at every turn, tearing up the narrative that society tried to impose on her. Now, Pauline is finally ready to tell the world her story. Carefully balancing dance and theatre, What If I Told You immerses us in Pauline’s world as she invites us to pause, breathe and reconsider the stories we tell about our past and the history on which we build our futures. Pauline Mayers is a choreographer and theatre-maker, who creates shows that come to life at the meeting point of dance and theatre.

Written and Performed by Pauline Mayers. Director Chris Goode.

Men, ageing and mortality

If you're the only one who's still around
All your friends are gone,
or under the ground.
How come you were the last
Remembering the past?
You just stand and stare
And wonder if it happened,
were you ever really there?

What’s it really like to be an old man? Entering your seventh, eighth or ninth decade? 509 Arts presents a new publication and theatre work in progress exploring the inner landscape of the older man and drawing on the diverse voices of ageing men from the local area.

Written by Mike Kenny and directed by
Alan Dix with music by James Frewer
and photography by Shanaz Gulzar.
