THEATRE, DANCE & CIRCUS For Sama Tue 28 Jan 7.30pm A love letter from a young mother to her daughter. The documentary film For Sama tells the story of Waad al-Kateab’s life through five years of the uprising in Aleppo, Syria as she falls in love, gets married and gives birth to Sama, all while cataclysmic conflict rises around her. Her camera captures incredible stories of loss, laughter and survival as Waad wrestles with an impossible choice – whether or not to flee the city to protect her daughter’s life, when leaving means abandoning the struggle for freedom for which she has already sacrificed so much. For Sama was awarded the Prix L’Œil d’Or for Best Documentary at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival and the Grand Jury Award for Best Documentary at the SXSW Film Festival. Come early to experience the Future Aleppo VR experience – details below. 1hr 40mins / Age 18+ Theatre £6 Post Show Talk

Future Aleppo Sun 26 Jan 1 – 7.30pm Mon 27 & Tue 28 Jan 3 – 7pm Future Aleppo is an exhibition and virtual reality (VR) experience based on the inspirational work of Mohammed Kteish. Amongst the gunfire and falling bombs, Mohammed Kteish dreamt of a better future for his city. On the rooftop of his ravaged building, he started turning that dream into reality by visualising and then constructing a cityscape of his own, sourcing whatever materials he could find in the debris to construct a papercraft recreation of the city. This is your opportunity to see an exhibition of Mohammed’s models and, through VR, be guided round Aleppo by him, engaging with the city’s inhabitants and experiencing the city from his perspective.
