verd de gris: Into the Blue

January 30

A performance of music, dance and poetry inspired by the plight of local refugees and asylum seekers.

verd de gris have been listening to the stories of people seeking refuge living in Calderdale: their harrowing journeys, their thoughts of home, their arrival in the UK and the uncertainty many families live with on a daily basis. For these people, the reasons for flight may be very different, but their feelings are always the same: feelings of helplessness and fear, resilience and hope.

You are invited to share their creative response to these difficult, often heart-rending experiences in an afternoon of passion, struggle and above all, hope.

Featuring the combined talents of:

  • Performing Arts Students from Calderdale College
  • Music Tech Students from Calder High School
  • Afghan boys Adaam and Murat
  • Cellist Helen Thatcher
  • Choreographer Natalie Speake
  • Director Sharon Marsden

Tickets are free, but booking in advance is advised. Seating is unreserved in the Copper Auditorium.
