After three successive nights of protest and disruption to Bathsheva’s Sadlers Wells performances now its Plymouth’s turn. Its already a remarkable achievement that a state sponsored Israeli company has faced huge protests, and had their show disrupted on every single night of their UK tour. We are sending a really powerful message to all theatre venues in the UK that Brand Israel will not be tolerated, and theatre directors will be thinking twice about booking companies like Batsheva in the future.
We need to make sure that Bathsheva leaves the UK with an absolutely clear message that they are not welcome anywhere in the UK, and neither is any company or artist that acts as a cultural ambassador for the apartheid state of Israel.
Please support the Plymouth protests on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th November.
