Choreographer for Crystal's Vardo

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchPerformance


Gypsy, Roma, Traveller History Month (GRTHM) was created in 2008, and celebrates the richness and diverse contributions that Gypsy, Roma and Traveller communities have made throughout British history to present day. Through celebrating Gypsy, Roma, Traveller heritage and culture, sharing knowledge and raising awareness we are seeking to challenge the myths, tackle discrimination, and further empower the diverse voices of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller Community. We all have a role to play.
Check out “Roads from the past”, a short, animated clip about the history of Gypsy, Roma and Traveller people in Britain, from ancient times up to the present day.

The theme for this year’s Gypsy, Roma and Traveller History Month is ‘Make Some Space’

Friends Families of Travellers have produced some amazing resources for GRTHM

C-DaRE’s Rosa Cisneros was on the steering committee for the materials and helped develop the content for the resources used by social services, city councils, classrooms and art institutions. Cisneros is also working with FFT to choreograph the dance section of Crystal’s Vardo, a theatre production led by GRT community which uses dance, drama humour and music to share the rich culture and diverse histories of the Gypsy, Roma and Traveller. The piece has been reworked for film and Cisneros supported Suzanna King, Director of Crystal’s Vardo, in that process and also created teaching resources for the classroom.
