Quick OverviewA rich tapestry of songs, live music and archive film is woven into a video ballad for our times based on the stories of migrant workers coming to the UK over the past 50 years and the more recent experience of asylum seekers and refugees.
The Wild Geese DVD is a recording of a performance of a video ballad production created by Banner Theatre and filmed at Luton Library Theatre in 2006. Stories of migrant workers coming to the UK over many years, and the recent experience of refugees and asylum seekers, are told through video and archive film, with live music and song.
Banner Theatre is a socialist theatre company based in Birmingham. Formed in 1973, from a disparate collection of folk singers, drama teachers, office workers, broadcasters, technicians and car factory workers, Banner is one of the few companies from the radical community theatre movement of the 1960s-1970s still creating and performing work in partnership with Britain’s Trade Union movement, and working class and disenfranchised communities – those A. Sivanandan calls ‘communities of resistance’.
