We are delighted to invite you all to this Melting Pan & Terra Nova Productions adaptation of 2018’s stage production of Me You Us Them, previewing exclusively at Reform Radio, on Thursday the 12th of October at 6.30pm.
The production will bring characters to life from various cultures in Northern Ireland, including voices and experience from Nigeria, rural Armagh, Belfast, China, Jamaica and Donegal. Informed by conversations with real people from across Northern Ireland, the piece has been curated through Terra Nova’s ethical intercultural practice. Experience the angry, funny, hopeful and heartfelt voices of complex characters, which make an extraordinary difference to those we usually witness on main stages.
The Me You Us Them creative team is led by mixed-race actor-director-producer Melissa Dean, supported by Andrea Montgomery. Through the process, the pair discovered new ways of sharing theatre on film, as they took ownership of sound scope and production elements, making it an exciting immersive adaptation to delve into as an audience member.
As racism and fascism is continually rising across the post-pandemic world, the accounts of racial experience in Northern Ireland through the production are strikingly important and current. This marks the piece as a necessary production to experience, in hearing real stories of racism, identity and sense of belonging.
