Event description
In ice&fire's performance, the chilling truth of the hidden and cruel inequality affecting asylum seekers in British society is laid bare.

About this event

The University of Northampton Branch are excited to be able to invite members to a free, online event exploring asylum in Britain.

Ice&fire have been successfully running Actors For Human Rights since 2006, sharing verbatim testimony on a variety of human rights topics across the UK. Working with both actors and people with lived experience to perform the testimonies in non-theatre spaces.

Detention Monologues is their most requested script, which presents experiences of people seeking refuge in the UK. They have collected over 30 such testimonies (women refugees, LGBTQIA+ refugees, boat journeys, detention, deportation, political persecution, trafficking, young refugees, undocumented migrants, etc).

The set up is very simple & impactful - three interwoven testimonies (45 minutes in total) are read by professional performers followed with a Q&A and facilitated discussion.
