It is claimed that there are more food banks than McDonalds in the UK.
Working with Foleshill Community Centre, Hungry Nation Part 1 presented themes around how food poverty and access to food affects real lives of the people in Coventry.
For this second stage, a creative team, a cast of community participants and professional actors are rehearsing together to develop a brilliant new piece of theatre with live music, movement, audio recordings and performance that shares the everyday lives of those experiencing food poverty. Join us to reflect on these journeys and to debate what Coventry’s ‘Right to Food’ pledge really means. This work has been in process since September 2021 and we are excited to have co-created a truly remarkable piece of theatre that is artistically thrilling, packs a punch and is authentic through and through."
Produced by Coventry City of Culture Trust and Strike a Light. Supported by Spirit of 2012, Arts Council England, Strike a Light, Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and Feeding Coventry
