Julie Christie, Mackenzie Crook, Sinead Cusack, Colin Firth, Emilia Fox, Michael Gambon, Sophie Okonedo, Mark Rylance, Danny Sapani, John Sessions, Kevin Spacey, Juliet Stevenson, Ken Stott, Zoe Wanamaker, and James Wilby will be among the performers in the West End benefit, WE ARE ONE – a celebration of tribal peoples, to be held at the Apollo Theatre, on Sunday, April 18, at 5pm. The event will also include a performance by Bruce Dickinson, Jon Lord, and Ian Paice.
The fundraising evening is created and directed by Rylance, and inspired by the words and images of tribal peoples featured in the recently published book, also titled WE ARE ONE – a celebration of tribal peoples. The volume was created and edited by Jo Eede and published by Quadrille Publishing, to mark the 40th anniversary of Survival International.
Proceeds from the West End event will benefit this human rights organization that campaigns for tribal peoples.
“As a child, I was enriched and inspired by the lives and stories of the world’s tribal peoples. As an adult, I have also been inspired by the ceaseless work of the organization Survival International, and their movement to protect these tribes – from the rainforest of the Amazon to the icy reaches of the Arctic…To celebrate 40 years of Survival’s work and enjoy the beauty of the spoken word from such rich oral cultures, I am gathering my friends from the theatre on the set of Jerusalem for a wonderful spring afternoon of eloquent recitals and stunning images from ‘We are One’.”
