1 December • An Evening with an Immigrant

Born to a Muslim father and a Christian mother in what is now considered by many to be Boko Haram territory, in 1996 award-winning poet and playwright Inua Ellams left Nigeria for England aged 12, moved to Ireland for three years, before returning to London. Littered with poems, stories and anecdotes, Inua will tell his ridiculous, fantastic, poignant immigrant-story of escaping fundamentalist Islam, directing an arts festival at his college in Dublin, performing solo shows at the National Theatre, and drinking wine with the Queen of England, all the while without a country to belong to or place to call home.

Written and performed by Inua Ellams.
Produced by Fuel Theatre.

Also at Bridport Arts Centre.

Fodé Lassana Diabaté – Sunjata‘s Time

Adam Caird and Charlotte Caird – A Child’s Christmas in Wales, by Dylan Thomas, with narrator Mark Tattersall

A festive musical treat from one of the UK’s leading contemporary string quartets. This wonderful adaptation for strings and narrator of A Child’s Christmas in Wales chronicles Dylan Thomas’s own childhood memories and remains one of his most popular and loved works. Stef Conner’s new piece is inspired by Benjamin Britten’s much-loved work of a similar name. In the extraordinary Sunjata’s Time Malian composer Diabaté magically blends the rich musical heritage of West Africa with the sounds of the western string quartet.
