Exhibitions & other Projects


{Tuesday22nd June}

Tuesday 22nd June - 7pm
The Warren Centre, 47-49 Queen's Dock Avenue

Migrant Voices Banner Theatre
Local Voices: Warren Young Peoples Theatre Group

Free 01482 218115 (Chris Smith)

Interweaving beautiful live music with drama and video, Migrant Voices is an emotionally charged theatrical experience created by one of the Uk's best and most radical touring theatre groups. Middle Eastern and British musical traditions are entwined as the experiences of ordinary people fleeing persecution are set against some of the causes of global instability that make people into refugees.

Starting with a performance of Migrant Voices at the Thorpes Resource Centre, Orchard Park on 12th May, a group of young people working with Banner Theatre and Chris Smith, have created a stunning local response to the global issue of refugees.

The new works are innovative and thoughtprovoking, showing both sides of the thorny political issue and taking you beyond tabloid headlines to the personal experiences of real people: real drama.

The Warren's annual contribution to the Humber Mouth has developed a reputation as a 'must see' event. This year the result promises to be sizzling!

Project supported by Hull Youth Council, Hull Asylum & Refugee Support Team, Voices, Thorpes Resource Centre, Route 1, Unity in the Community.

Tuesday 22nd June to Thursday 24th June - 7.30pm
Hull Truck Theatre, Spring Street
New Writing Festival

�3.50 Box Office 01482 323638

World premieres of short plays by Hull and East Yorkshire-based writers, with rehearsed readings of three new plays every night and post-show talkbacks with writers, actors and directors!

Hull Truck is one of the country's most prolific and renowned theatre companies and one that is fully committed to new writing. Each year, Hull Truck commissions up to six new plays which are produced at the theatre as well as touring to scores of venues nationwide. To further their commitment to new writing, a new writer's group was formed in March 2003, enabling aspiring, local, first-time dramatists to engage in a series of writing workshops, masterclasses and discussions with professionals.

Led by Gareth Tudor Price (Hull Truck Associate Director), the sessions have provided support and feedback for work in progress and have given the nine writers in the group the opportunity to discuss and evaluate their work.

With assistance from Arts Council England through their Creative Factory funding.

Tuesday 22nd June - 8pm
Haworth Arms, Cottingham Road

Nothing Happens Here!

Liberation. Revolution. Resurrection.
Ambivalence towards it all. Words can't bring us down, apparently. This is a showcase event, a night of diverse opinions; a night of people talking about whatever they want. We call this freedom of speech and we are coming, of course, from the streets. This evening is about you and me and how we have lived, out here on the periphery.

Have your say. Come out and celebrate another Summer of Love in the mad and magical setting of 22nd Century Hull. As ever, we'll be following the discussion with a disco. So be here, or stay in and watch the square thing. You have nothing to lose but your minds...
