As some of you may already know, Banyan Tree Theatre Group (formerly known as MOSAIC Puppet Theatre Group) has grown into a constituted group that has previously performed during Black History Month celebrations and Brighton Fringe. As we approach our 5th birthday we’ve received a fantastic funding award from the Arts Council alongside support from Hedgcock Bequest (Brighton & HoveCity Council), Healthy Neighbourhood Fund and the Irene Mensah Artist Bursary, that means we can continue our ongoing learning and development and bring performances to our communities as well as supporting our desire to increase the representation of women of colour in the Arts.
Our latest show, Why Mosquitoes Buzz In People’s Ears, a traditional African folktale told using colourful puppets, live action and sounds from Africa and the Caribbean, will be performed during this year’s Brighton Fringe on Sunday 3rd and Monday 4th May and we’d appreciate it if you can spread the word via email with the promotional flyer, attached.
Plus we’ve secured an exclusive community ticket offer of 15% off full price tickets. Click here to claim your discount via the online box office or call 07800 983 290 quoting ‘Mosquito Love’.
Please show your support for Brighton’s only all-female, all Black and Minority Ethnic theatre group and join us as we solve the mystery of Why Mosquitoes Buzz In People’s Ears! Trust us, Brighton is in for a treat.
