Sun up, Rain falls, River rises by Phosphoros Theatre 12pm, 12 Oct
Journeys Festival (online)
Three audio narratives created by Phosphoros Theatre, to listen to at sunrise, after the rain and when you’re walking by water. The sun comes up on Goitom Fesshaye cycling off to work at his family shop in Eritrea. Syed Haleem Najibi plays in his glistening village in Afghanistan after the rain when all other forms of entertainment were banned. Mohamed Abdu stands on the banks of the great river Nile in Sudan and wishes he had the same power to cross borders. Three new compositions by Mira Siegel respond to and complete each narrative.
