Gekkota Arts - Expectations

Pomegranate Theatre (invited audience)

13th and 14th June (DATE ES TO BE CONFIRMED)

Hidden Strangers by Louise Page

Explores the way those of German, Hungarian and Austrian extraction living in and around Chesterfield were judged, condemned and vilified during the First World War. In Hasland there were riots against local pork butchers. At Buxton the subscription band who had played for the bank holiday makers on August 3rd, became enemies on the declaration of war the next day. This piece explores this area of hidden history and how those who had built their lives in Britain suddenly became the enemy.

NOT WORDS - How Sometimes words fail but art and image speak

The Pomegranate Youth Theatre and Gekkota Arts has received £26,300

from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project,

made possible by money raised by National Lottery players.

It explores the visual legacy of the suffragettes and how that contributed

to the strong images used by women war artists in WW1

such as local artist Marjorie Hamilton.

It  will explore the link between Derbyshire

and surrounding areas and the national suffrage campaign

and how poorly educated women workers developed strong visual symbolism

to promote their cause.

Research will be shared through development of a play with a visual artist providing images.
