PREVIEW: We’ll meet in MOSCOW

Graham Robson November 6, 2015

“A story about hope, the distances we travel and the lengths we go to when falling in love.

“A love story between two women that spans a hundred years, moves across continents, and occurs in a multitude of languages.”



We’ll meet in MOSCOW is a new piece of performance work created through an artistic collaboration between writer Natalie McGrath (Oxygen, Coasting), choreographer Jane Mason (Life Forces, Singer), designer Sophia Clist (Oxygen, The World at Your Feet), director Nicola Rosewarne (The Enchanted Palace, Third Light), and performers Michelle Ridings and Belinda Chapman.

We’ll meet in MOSCOW is part of a wider project responding to global anti-gay legislation, in particular Gay Pride being banned in Moscow for 100 years.

We'll meet in MOSCOWAlongside the live performance work, the project encompasses participatory engagement platforms for LGBTQ groups and organisations across Devon, including workshops and writing groups.

Integral to the future life of the project is the development of a space to host ‘digital gifts’ – stories about love and pride in these challenging times, an opportunity to share experiences about falling in love and the struggles that can face LGBTQ people when doing so. This wider project is led by LGBTQ writer Natalie McGrath.

This is a unique project for Devon: bringing together an experienced theatre-making team to address challenging global issues through the creation of meaningful, beautiful work; making connections between groups and organisations across the region to ensure that LGBTQ voices are heard.
