Continuous Cabaret Newport

It was a collectively quick decision. After the Newport Assembly I felt the need to follow it up with something solid, a performance, another opportunity to be part of the day to day life of Newport. Marega, Dino and I had talked over a few beers back in November and felt that if the Assembly was to mean anything we had to be proactive in creating a new liaison. We had just met during the days we spent pulling shapes in the Empty Shop window but there was a nice bubbling feeling after…

There is a field

New Play based on real events

There is a field where language doesn't matter, there is a field where right or wrong do not exist. There is a field where everyone is the same, 'even the phrase 'each other' doesn't exist....when the soul lies down in the grass and the world is too full to talk about...I'll meet you there.........'

Aseel never had the chance to grow up.

'Be proud as Arabs and Palestinians and be proud as human beings'
