Challenging prejudice against Gypsies

Challenging prejudice against Gypsies

Romany lives in the Crays
The Bromley Museum, Orpington, Kent
Phone 01689 873 826 for opening times

An exhibiton featuring artwork and photography by over 40 Gypsy children from Bromley, is on show at the Bromley Museum. It is the result of a project run by the Novas Group and the Children’s Society.

The project gave Gypsy children the opportunity to record their lives and culture over a nine month period. It aims to challenge the prejudice and discrimination that travellers face.

Theatre 503, The Latchmere Pub, 503 Battersea Park Road, London SW11
13 March 2005 and 10 April 2005, 7.30pm, £5/£3

This is a monthly evening of political theatre and poetry. Each evening is different. Pieces evolve according to the artists’ response to current events around the world.

What you are in for is a good hour’s worth of quality material each month — an eclectic mix of drama, monologues, poetry and comedy, incorporating music, film and other art forms.

SubVERSE artists wish to create work that engages and entertains whilst maintaining political ideals.

I’m a fool to want you
Told by an Idiot
Lyric Theatre, London, 15-20 March

Told by an Idiot use live music and physical theatre to explore the life and death of Boris Vian.

The French writer and philosopher, who was influenced by the jazz scene of the 1930s, died in 1959 of a heart attack while watching a terrible film adaptation of his book, I’ll Spit on Your Graves, in a Parisian cinema.

This is an absolute pleasure to watch. It has live jazz and terrific performances from Stephen Harper and Hayley Carmichael.
