WEAVE Capacity Building LabDay

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventPublic Engagement Event

Description

Friends Families and Travellers have a long history of leading on trainings, campaigns, producing educational materials, curating artistic collaborations and working horizontally with Gypsy, Roma and Travellers. In 2021 Suzanna King approached C-DaRE’s Rosa Cisneros to choreograph the dance portion of the restaging of Crystal’s Vardo, a piece directed by King herself. The piece was being reworked for camera and King was keen to develop certain sections and produce a teacher’s resource pack. The two continued to collaborate and for the Yellow Couch Convos Podast Series, Cisneros sat down with actors and musicians involved in the new theatre production.

For this WEAVE LabDay Cisneros, King and actors and musicians involved in the production will sit down and discuss Crystal’s Vardo and the importance of such works to reflect on racism, bullying and the value of generating teacher’s resources. Participants will see excerpts of the work, meet part of the cast, have access to the teacher’s materials and ask the team questions about how to implement this work in their settings.
