ice&fire

Ice&fire are a company with a distinct and determined voice, developing original theatre pieces from human rights testimony and documentary evidence. Each piece is shaped by the real people and communities with whom we closely work.
We believe that through theatre we can bring unparalleled understanding and empathy to some of the world’s most urgent issues. We want to empower people and communities to express their rights through the power of sharing stories and transporting performance.

Founded 2003

  • Mission statement

    Iceandfire explores human rights stories through performance. High quality production is supported by creative education, outreach and participation projects.

    In the six years since its inception iceandfire has produced acclaimed national tours of 'I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Given to Me by a Young Lady from Rwanda', 'Crocodile Seeking Refuge' and ‘Welcome to Ramallah’; developed the national outreach network of performers Actors For Human Rights, who perform awareness raising scripts about contemporary human rights concerns across the UK; toured London schools with new plays for young people; and created the national playwriting competition, Protect the Human, in partnership with Amnesty International UK.

    Upcoming work includes the launch of new outreach scripts, on the issues of the elderly and the UK’s terrorism laws, as well as a new play for young people, VacciNation.
