Made In India Britain
Foundry artist: Rinkoo Barpaga

Birmingham born Rinkoo Barpaga has moved around a lot trying to find somewhere to finally settle. Required to both tick the box, 'ethnic minority,' but also 'Deaf' he has been forced to constantly ask the question, "where do I belong?"

Made In India Britain is an insight into one man's life as he tries to fathom out exactly who he is as he delves deep into past experiences to try and find clues which will help him settle in his present and find a place he can finally call home. 

Directed by Daniel Bailey


Foundry artist: Lorna Nickson Brown

BUTTERFLIES is one woman's autobiographical journey through cancer, and beyond. Supported by the voices of thyroid cancer patients across the world, this show examines the impact a cancer diagnosis can have on mental health.

Writer/performer Lorna Nickson Brown takes us along a path of self-discovery, asking what it means to be fearless and what it is to live a meaningful life. BUTTERFLIES is an exploration of both the complexities of cancer and what it is to be human.

An honest, life-affirming piece of theatre about connection, truth and the limitations of Amazon's Alexa.

Presented in partnership with the Butterfly Thyroid Cancer Trust.

Directed by Susan Lynch


Foundry artist: Zeddie Lawal

She's queer, a christian and carries a whole lot of baggage, Exhale is an autobiographical piece that explores coming of age in the diaspora, class, whilst battling a faith that contradicts her existence. A solo show entwined with live music, Exhale is a journey of undoing - a trail of faith, sexuality and forgiveness.

Directed by Daniel Bailey
