Share stories with each other, create a community using music and movement, find the power of listening.

Alongside devising performances, Seemia Theatre have extensive experience facilitating workshops in a number contexts. Engaging with our local and international communities has always been integral to our creative process and company ethos. We are particularly keen to provide opportunities for people with history of migration, who may have English as a Second Language from Iranian, Middle Eastern and Latinx heritage.

From drumming workshops as part of the Albany's REBEL Season, to a 10 week programme of cultural exchange focussed on confidence building for refugee women with The Marylebone Project - making space for people to be creative and have their voice heard is key.

We are excited to be working Oxford Playhouse to develop our offer for communities to engage our unique devising style. If you're interested in hearing more about how we can work with you and your community, feel free to get in touch.

Following a 3-hour workshop with the whole company in the summer, Seemia presented a 10-week programme of workshops with residents from from The Marylebone Project (A charity and hostel for homeless women in London, most of whom are refugees from Eritrea and Ethiopia).

The workshops were a cultural exchange focussed on openness  and trust using music & drumming, movement and poetry as a vehicle to play, share and listen.
