A performance workshop led by Around the Well

About this Event

A performance workshop led by Around the Well, a company that emerged from a farewell event for Mothertongue, the Reading-based multi-ethnic counselling and interpreting service. Around the Well members include Dr Beverley Costa, psychotherapist and former CEO of Mothertongue, and Dr Teresa Murjas, Professor in Theatre and Performance at the University of Reading. Beverley and Teresa are joined by professional interpreters Kamaljit Dosanjh (Punjabi and Urdu), San Maya Gurung (Nepali), Joanna Mungai (Polish) and Guida Shields (Portuguese), for whom storytelling is a way of seeking common ground. Between is their first co-created performance-lecture and it uses stories, written and told by all the participants, about migration, multilingualism, identity, empathy, loss and renewal.
