The first public screening of ‘Memories Flow through Me like a Boat Floats down the River’ will take place at 3pm on Sunday 29 October at Orleans House Gallery.

The piece depicts the history of the Belgian refugees who lived and worked in East Twickenham during World War I, and is told through dance theatre.

The original performance in July, funded by the Arts Council, was incredibly popular and the screening will be followed by a discussion with historian Helen Baker and the creative team behind the project.

Cllr David Linnette, Cabinet member for Arts, Culture and the Voluntary Sector said:

“This is a wonderful opportunity for people who missed or loved the original performance to see it again, as well as giving an insight into the creative process behind the performance.

“The screening is part of this year’s literature festival, another sign of this year’s programme being the most diverse yet.”

Tickets are free but booking is essential. For more information and to book visit the website or call 020 8831 6494.
