Poot productions presents a new devised work discussing the ‘Jungle’ refugee camp in Calais. Exploring the people’s responses, the government’s responses and, using the words of some of the refugees and volunteers themselves, we aim to show what’s really happening out there.
In the summer half-term break, two teachers from the CLF boarded a ferry to Calais to volunteer in the Refugee camp. Poot productions, a collective of talented Post 16 performing arts students from The Cabot Learning Federation including singers, dancers, actors and musicians have come together to present a new work that aims to tell some of the ‘Jungle’s stories. What is happening over there? Why are people literally dying to get to the UK?
The students have met and talked with refugees in Bristol, researched, read and recorded information and have rehearsed and developed this new exciting work over two weeks. Performed over two nights on the 18th and 19th July at Tobacco Factory Theatres, with a talk from the renowned Calais Refugee Solidarity Bristol group and all profits going directly to the cause – we aim to dispel the myths, raise awareness and a passion for all human life.
