Memories Flow Through Me Like a Boat Flows Down the River: Commemorating le Village Belge sur la Tamise
Film screening & discussion with Helen Baker

This afternoon we will host the first public screening of the film Memories Flow Through Me Like a Boat Flows Down the River – a pop-up dance theatre performance celebrating the history of the Belgian Refugees who lived and worked in East Twickenham during the First World War.

Choreographed by acclaimed choreographer Jennifer Irons, and featuring professional dancers and students from Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance and the University of Roehampton, the piece was originally performed in Cambridge Gardens, close to the location of the former Pelabon Munitions Works where many of the Belgian Refugees worked between 1914 and 1918.

This is an opportunity to see the full version of the performance, as well as interviews with the artistic and project team and also hear from Helen Baker, historian and Chair of the East Twickenham Centennial Group who are championing this history.
