Bedford Creative Arts programmed two art installations, Asma by Theatre Témoin and Love From Syria by Roshi Nasehi, for Bedford’s Refugee Week 2019. The events took place at The Higgins Bedford and the Place Theatre from 15-24 June 2019 and the launch event at The Higgins Bedford also featured music by a local refugee community group from the Kings Arms Project. Love from Syria went on to be presented at the Migration Matters Festival in Sheffield.
We also presented “Red INK” by Wayward Thread, a dance performance at The Place Bedford on 19 June, which completely sold out. Tickets went like wildfire at other venues too and is testament to the anticipation for up-and-coming British-Asian choreographer Si Rawlinson’s first full-length touring production.
