ArtWorks have been working with the ICA and the Goethe Institute to bring the film ‘Fire at Sea’ to a brand new audience.
Samuele is 12 years old and lives on an island in the middle of the sea. He goes to school, loves shooting his slingshot and going hunting. He likes land games, even though everything around him speaks of the sea and the men, women and children who try to cross it to get to his island. But his is not an island like the others – its name is Lampedusa and it is the most symbolic border of Europe, crossed by thousands of migrants in the last 20 years in search of freedom.

Situated some 200km off Italy’s southern coast, Lampedusa has hit world headlines in recent years as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern migrants hoping to make a new life in Europe. Rosi spent months living on the Mediterranean island, capturing its history, culture and the current everyday reality of its 6,000-strong local population as hundreds of migrants land on its shores on a weekly basis. The resulting documentary focuses on 12-year-old Samuele, a local boy who loves to hunt with his slingshot and spend time on land even though he hails from a culture steeped in the sea.
We are so proud to bring Fire at Sea to communities in RCT with the support of ICA and their crossing project. To book your sea please contact Claire on 01443 303032

“Wales is at civil war – what does this mean for you? Where is the safest place for you to be?
Anyone can become a refugee – what if it happened to you?
Swarm is a brand new immersive theatre experience, giving the audience a chance to feel what it could be like if they were put in the shoes of a refugee. Working with a professional and community cast, this is a unique production unlike anything else you may have seen.”
Supported by the Big Lottery, Rhondda Cynon Taf Council and ArtWorks Valleys Kids.
Swarm will be performed on Friday 28th July at 7pm in the Factory. Tickets are available here… https://fio.yapsody.com/event/book/111541/452086
