An evening of film and live performance for Refugee Week. All box office income will support Universal Language: I Speak Football - a local organisation that empowers young people who have English as their second language, including recent migrants and refugees.
Hear the stories of people from across the globe who have arrived in London and made this city their new home. Some have moved for work, some for love, and some to flee war and persecution. All the stories are told by the people who lived them. Hear from the real people behind the headlines, and experience London's rich history of migration.
London Stories: Made by Migrants is a Battersea Arts Centre and Fettis Films co-production.
Brought to you by the creators of last year's gig-theatre hit, Songs For The End Of The World, Still Waiting is about the hundred handshakes you experience in the Calais Refugee Camp, voluntourism and packets of pasta, and our relationship with Europe's refugee crisis.
Performed by John Biddle, Dom Coyote and Loren O'Dair, Still Waiting draws on personal experiences in the refugee camps of Calais, Paris and Greece, twitter feeds from the Calais final evictions, and material from the Refugee Rights Data Reports to show a version of events hidden in mainstream media.
Still Waiting is a celebration of the hundreds of grassroots organisations that have sprung up across Europe to support refugees, and the thousands of volunteers who have supported those journeying to Europe. We don't pretend to be a voice for refugees, nor do we have that right. But we are saying 'Not In My Name', loudly, and with music, to a UK government that greets those seeking refuge with walls, barbed wire, violence and fear.
