Iyad Hayatleh merges spoken word, visuals, and sound to explore the plight of Palestinians living in Syrian refugee camps amidst the revolution. Rachel Thibbotumunuwe’s installation is a cacophony of voice, words and technology; it considers how music, fable, love and identity intermingle to create a space for self-reflection. Through archival footage and live performance, Rachel Jury explores the relationship of Nina Simone and Lorraine Hainsbury during the Civil Rights Movement and their artistic legacy. Yinka Ekundayo presents a play inspired by endangered wetlands. In association with the National Theatre of Scotland and the Citizens' Theatre.
