Release UK finally got their first shot at the stage on the 14th July at Civic Hall in Bedworth town centre with the Tamil Welfare Association whom hosts their annual celebrations and put on a variety show of Tamil Arts and literature. This lasts pretty much all day till the early hours of the morning but it’s all fantastic stuff!
Release UK performed their devised drama called ‘Breaking the Silence’ inspired by the groups own writing tackling injustice to communities that suffer human rights abuses. The black sketch was daring and bold and had elements of mime and song. A real winner with the audience whom were drawn in from beginning to end despite the group only having 5 hours to devise the piece in a space of 6 weeks. We nailed it beautifully.
It was a real honour to receive my golden robe by the Tamil welfare Association but the real honour has been working with the young people. A Huge shoat out to you all.
