GAP | PERFORMANCE | Labels by Joe Sellman-Leava | Wednesday 18-Thursday 26 October 2017

[Edited extract from public address]

Fresh from an acclaimed season at Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Gasworks Arts Park is delighted to bring UK performer Joe Sellman-Leava and his one-man show Labels to our shores.

Labels is a multi-award winning funny theatre show, telling a moving story about mixed heritage and immigration. Recounting his childhood in rural ’90s England in light of changing political attitudes and the ongoing refugee crisis, the performance melds stand-up comedy, storytelling and spoken word.

Shortlisted for Amnesty International’s Freedom of Expression Award, Labels analyzes the way we use words, the line between curiosity and fear, and the rise of anti-immigration rhetoric.

Amid the cacophony of statistics and soundbites that surround the immigration debate, Labels offers an honest, human story about the bridges and barriers formed in a multicultural Britain.
