The Ragroof Players create street theatre, site-specific shows, and participatory dance events. The company, who have worked together for more than a decade, collaborate closely with specific communities to make their theatre shows, which tell true-life stories using a multiplicity of languages – spoken, sung, played and danced.
Ragroof’s Bridges y Puentes is a vibrant and accessible show about migration and the search for home. It is a promenade performance, with an international cast of actor/dancers, that evolves from the space around you and then disappears as if into thin air.
Bridges is created from a process of extensive research in the place it is sited in. It has been performed in many different sites and cities across the UK and France with enormous success.
A new version of Bridges premieres at Hull Freedom Festival 2017 after the company have spent time over Winter/Spring 2017 working with Open Doors and HANA to meet migrants to Hull, hear their stories and use this material to inform and create the work itself, making it absolutely relevant to Hull.
The creative team includes Marion Duggan, director and co-devisor; Dorothy Max Prior, writer/dramaturg and Carmela Acuyo, choreographer.
Please note, this performance will take place in George Street car park. This is an hour-long promenade show, which means you will either be standing still or walking for the duration of the performance. Please get in touch with Freedom Festival in advance if you have specific access needs.
If you have purchased a ticket for an event/activity at this venue through hull2017.co.uk, please do not contact the venue direct with enquiries for that purchase as they will be unable to help.
