Breathing Fire are a Black women’s theatre group who use playback methods which is a unique form of interactive theatre enabling audiences to tell their own stories.
People from the audience are invited to share moments from their own lives. They then see them being brought to life as the company immediately recreates the essence of their story using movement, dance, music and song.
They are performing on the opening weekend of the exhibition on Saturday, 7th May, from 7-9pm.
They also facilitate workshops people in prisons, with learning difficulties and who are experiencing mental distress.
To celebrate International Women’s Day they are holding workshops for women taking place on Saturday 12th March. See the flier below!
