The extraordinary artist Emma Fay brings her Enter Edem theatre company‘s Un Dia experience to Leicester’s Festival of Life and Death event at Haymarket Theatre on 8th September 2018.
Emma uses radically beautiful art and theatre to educate and change minds about challenges of modern times – to improve life and humanity, health, environment, etc.
Un Dia will be performed within the Studio Theatre, next to the main Hobgoblin Foyer stage area, featuring performers and speakers including David Parkin, Daryl Kirkland, Refuge, and Freddie Ferrier.
The Un Dia experience will be continuous so that visitors can join/leave any time during the 2-5pm FoLaD event.
The Festival of Life and Death is a global movement for suicide education and prevention. The Haymarket Theatre FoLaD is the founding event. Emma Fay’s Un Dia is a wonderful addition to activities.
Thank you Emma and team.
The Festival of Life and Death and Un Dia are free to attend.
“We would like to bring a flavour of ‘Un Dia’ to FoLaD, our next show in development that is exploring the idea of what happens to us all ‘One Day.’ Following the relationship shared between a Grandpa and his Grandson, questions about life and death are revealed and discussed in this heart warming story.”
“We would like to create a memory jar and giant Kite in a celebration of Life that the audience can contribute to throughout the workshop. Taking away a paper chrysanthemums as keep sakes of the experience, the attendees will be adding to our story with their first hand human experiences, based on prompted questions about relationships, time and impermanence, which will fuel our devising process and ultimately add to the authenticity of ‘Un dia’. ”
“Un dia focusses on ideas of presentism and intergenerational relationships, our characters will explore modern distractions that interrupt our living in the present through the themes of destruction, avoidance and isolation. By looking at contemporary ways of spending time, we seek to initiate a better appreciation of the here and now. The workshop will be lead by prompted cards which have questions for attendees to answer through their own accounts based on value, celebrating life and how we spend our time.”
Emma’s remarkable work has featured in campaigns for Macmillan Cancer Support, PETA, UN-Water, Born Free Foundation, Rethinkyourmind and World Toilet Day, and UK Shark Week featuring body art ‘models’ Tom Daley, Joss Stone, and members of the 2016 British Summer Olympics team.
