Me? I Just put British!
Performance Project’s Background:

This performance project is inspired by a two-year collaborative research with artists, social scientists and human rights organisations working with migrant families on the question of ‘Theatre as citizenship practice’ 

A Forum Theatre short play was created by the migrant families involved in the project which was then toured to different organisations, academic conferences, community and policy events as well as reaching the House of Commons to campaign against No Recourse to Public Funds policy that forces migrant families to destitution. The artistic team, led by Erene Kaptani, is developing with the migrant families a performance piece based on the experiences of living in London, belonging and home making. The performance blends together art practices from Physical Theatre, Forum and Playback Theatre as well as live music and spoken word. It includes audience participation and an after show discussion with artists, communities and researchers.
