VOICES is a new artistic collaboration that explores and celebrates freedom, providing a voice for those who go unheard.
Freedom at Night of Festivals London, produced by ArtReach 2016
Partners for the collaboration are Journeys Festival International producers ArtReach, major German street arts festival altonale (Hamburg, Germany), the children’s museum Explora - Il Museo Dei Bambini (Rome, Italy), community development agency CESIE (Palermo, Italy) and international theatre and Festival organisation Teatrul National Radu Stanca (Sibiu, Romania).
Journeys Festival International in Leicester takes place next August 2018 (dates TBC) and will host three newly commissioned outdoor theatre pieces created in the UK, Romania and Italy. With the UK's commission confirmed as Wheeze - the Wind of Change Parrabbola, you can be prepared for an intriguing and engaging performance!
As well as outdoor theatre, there will be parades and processional performances from local people and newly arrived refugees and asylum seekers in Leicester city. Creating a colourful parade, the performance is based on the theme of "welcome" and will bring together people from many different communities.
VOICES will also be a key part of UK based Night of Festivals London in July.
