‘This waiting for the Home Office to decide … it is a diplomatic form of torture.’
ice&fire theatre explores human rights stories through performance. Through active engagement with human rights themes they create high-quality work which responds to defining issues affecting our society and the world beyond. Since 2006, their Actors for Human Rights project has been collecting and disseminating first-hand accounts of asylum seekers and refugees living in the UK, working with more than 700 volunteer actors around the country to present verbatim testimonies from people who have experienced human rights abuses. They perform to thousands of people every year across the UK, telling stories from refugees and asylum seekers, people in poverty, undocumented migrants, women in Afghanistan and more.
