ABOUT INDRA PLYMOUTH
The groups work independently on exploring the conflicts in their local communities and use the arts for conflict transformation. Over the years the groups have met in Plymouth for a Global congress, which involved a sharing of the groups work and stories. The week culminated in a parade through the city centre as a celebration of the unity of the work. In 2013 the global congress took place in Derry, Northern Ireland as part of the City of Culture celebrations. In July 2015 Plymouth hosted and interim congress in preparation for Palestine 2016.
In the Plymouth group we devise theatre around issues that are important to the participants in the group, we then share these with the wider INDRA groups and ask them to feed into our devising process by exploring the same topic, or responding to questions that we have. We then use this information to generate the material that we then turn into a performance.
