After one week's research & development at Arcola Theatre as part of the Arcola LAB for BAME Artists,  Seemia presented our work-in-progress of Evros | The Crossing River. 

With support from Arcola Theatre, Theatre Delicatessen and Tangled Feet, Seemia Theatre have successfully been awarded a Grant for the Arts award to develop

Evros | The Crossing River.

After working for a year and presenting a 10 minute scratch at BAC, Seemia successfully applied for a year-long mentorship from Tangled Feet, giving advice such as marketing and finances. We are very thankful of their support and guidance in our ensemble's development.
