HEATON PARK, 15th July - 2nd August 2009

In July 2009, Manchesters Masters of Promenade returned to Heaton Park. As with our acclaimed 2002 production of Romeo & Juliet - Thando & Ruvhengo, Feelgood collaborated with outstanding international Zimbabwean artists from Theatre Under Fire to fuse text, a capella singing, dance and drumming into a dynamic and thought provoking 21st century production that transcends political, cultural and racial divides.

In 2006, after fleeing persecution in Zimbabwe, Peter Mutanda and fellow refugees formed the company, Theatre Under Fire. Using their unique performance skills they have quickly become leaders in their field, surviving with dignity, in 2008 receiving the Afro-Brit Community Award for Outstanding Contribution to Arts & Culture and in 2009 the Afro Brit Achievers Award. Creating this production has enabled us to share artistic ideals and celebrate diversity with laughter, song and understanding.
