New in Sheffield, Interplay Now

This is going to be a multi-lingual show in Sheffield because of the range of mother tongues spoken from freshly developing talents. Interplay Now Collective LIVE will present mostly in English with sections of Arabic, Swahili and French. It builds on our brief introductory outing during the Migration Matters festival where Azam Hassan and Naji Hussein performed impromptu at Theatre Deli:

This was after only the second project session and they received an enthusiastic strong applause. A quick video intro to the project was filmed and edited in the hours just before the performance, and we also screened that on the night:

The new Sheffield-based Interplay Now is an amazing project run by Virtual Migrants in collaboration with Sheffield Refugee Council. This means that artistic crossing over and connecting can be actively encouraged. We are lucky because we are also generously supported by SADACCA Studios so that we have a fantastic space for us to work in. Other partners include Theatre Deli (Sheffield) and Koni Music. We are also grateful for financial support from Awards For All and the Arts Council England which have enable the project to become possible.
