Millennium 8 - Making Poverty History
8pm, Saturday 14th June, 2008

By Nicky Lock
Posted Tuesday, April 8, 2008

This gripping production takes the audience through images and stories reflecting on the eight United Nations Millennium Development Goals. These goals were set by the countries of the United Nations in the year 2000 in order to halve world poverty by the year 2015. In 2008 whilst some progress has been made, in many areas progress is far from being on track to reach the goals by 2015. Amongst much talk of statistics and analysis, Breakthru’ Artz seeks to keep the stories of real people in real poverty alive through dance, drama, music, photography and physical theatre, stirring us to ongoing action.
