Battle Abbey School

A fun, creative two-day workshop and a celebratory performance in Battle as part of this summer’s Giufà Project.

Battle Festival is working together with Glyndebourne, Opera Circus and Crisis Classroom to create The Giufà Project, and we would love you to be part of it!

If you love singing, drama, movement and performance you are invited to join us for something very special at the end of the summer holidays. An exciting team of international artists from a range of different disciplines will be working with young people from across Europe and beyond to create and share new art on the theme of migration.  

The team of professional artists includes:

Omar Shahryar – Composer
Howard Moody – Composer
Judith Coleman – Singer
Lucy Bradley – Director
Laura Fatini – Writer/Director
Alister O’Loughlin – Parkour/Movement
Miranda Henderson – Dance/Movement
Tim Corrigan – Visual Art/Film

The Giufà Project is named after a traveler and migrant who features in many European folk tales. Through these stories the project explores migration in the context of the mass movement of people taking place in the world today.
