WeRNotVirus by Moongate Productions, Associate Producer
A collective of leading actors, writers, directors and creatives of East and South East Asian heritage from the UK’s performing arts industry joined forces online to present a new digital arts event titled WeRNotVirus. This urgent artistic response aimed to shine a light on the surge in hate crime directed towards the community during the Covid-19 crisis. Supported by the Arts Council Emergency Fund, WeRNotVirus features 10 newly commissioned stories, split across 2 shows, delivered using a variety of art forms including film, poetry, dance and song. The themes explore race, identity, representation, perspective and economics through the lens of East and South East Asian artists and their communities. Scroll down to see the full programme.
A panel discussion with leading academics and activists rounded off the performances after each show.
WeRNotVirus took place via Zoom on 13-14 June 2020
WeRNotVirus was presented in partnership with Omnibus Theatre.
