Refugee Tales with Raga Gibreel, Fran & Flora, David Flusfeder

Refugee Tales is an annual walk in solidarity with detainees and refugees calling for an end to indefinite detention in the UK. It is a life-affirming embodiment of compassion and community with stories and music shared at the end of each day. This show is modelled on one of these evening events. Imagine you have walked a long way, made new friends, heard snippets of people’s lives and you arrive at Free Range ready to rest, get a drink and listen.


The first story, ‘The Stranger’s Tale’, will be told by Raga Gibreel. Raga is a journalist, a former refugee and founder of Green Kordofan, a charity providing opportunities through sports to children in Yida refugee camp in South Sudan.


You’ll then hear the ‘beguiling beauty’ (The Wire) of string duo Fran & Flora playing music from the traditions of Klezmer, Transylvanian, Romanian, Greek and Armenian music.


The final story, ‘Y’s Tale’ is from journalist, author and opera librettist, David Flusfeder.
