Coming soon on 11th, 12th & 13th May at the Trinity Arts Centre, Bristol
A Spark and a Beating Heart
Performance times to be confirmed
Created and written by the company, A Spark and a Beating Heart is about us. Who we are, how we came here and why we do what we do. It’s a celebration & a love-letter, a party and an elegy. Mixing the many myths of the firebird with a collective reflection on lives lived. We are here to tell you our story.
“Yes, a spark and a beating heart full of fire, just before the story starts or the lights come up, us small players become the main act.”
Firebird Theatre is a unique group of disabled theatre-makers, spanning generations. They have been making theatre together for 25 years. Their experiences tell stories of shifting attitudes towards difference and disability; of understanding and ignorance.
This work has been made possible through funding from Arts Council England's Grants for the Arts Programme,www.artscouncil.org.uk, as well as support from private donations and other Trusts.
