This Is Who I Am

Directed by Seb Aguirre

A verbatim reading of testimonies from LGBT+ refugees about their experiences of fleeing their home country and seeking refuge in the UK read by actors from
Arcola Queer Collective.

ice&fire explores human rights stories through performance. We put human rights at the core of everything we do to make accessible theatre for a wide range of audiences across the UK. This Is Who I Am is one of our scripts for the Actors For Human Rights Project. We perform these readings anytime anywhere across the UK and normally in non-traditional venues such as town halls, community spaces, conference rooms, schools and universities.

All proceeds raised from this event will go to support the continued work of ice&fire, as well as one soon to be announced charity that support LGBT+ refugees and asylum seekers.


ice&fire’s presentation of This Is Who I Am is part of Creative/Disruption 18, in association with Arcola Queer Collective
