So I Can Breathe This Air

Sun 5, Mon 6 & Tues 7 Aug
Meet at Europa Bus Station, and finish at 274 Newtownards Road

11am & 2pm


Award-winning playwright Shannon Yee (Reassembled, Slightly Askew; Trouble) and NI’s only queer theatre company Theatre of plucK partner with members of the Rainbow Project’s Gay Ethnic Group (GEG) to bring audiences on a unique and surprising audio journey of the hidden perspectives of the experience of being LGBT and moving to/living in Northern Ireland. Stroll the streets of Belfast and hear stories of belonging, of being from here and not from here, feeling you belong here and don’t, and in some cases, simply struggling to get here. There will be a discussion following the tour, facilitated by Community Dialogue. With support from Arts Council NI and The National Lottery.  

The even duration is roughly 2 hours and 10 minutes in total. There will be an interval at Central Station after 80 mins. Anyone wishing to walk back to the city centre at the end of the event will be shown a direct route.
