Butetown refugee play Swarm 'to spark a conversation'

A new play opening in Cardiff aims to give audience members some of the same experiences faced by refugees.

People arriving to see Swarm will enter a "transit zone" established at Butetown History and Arts Centre.

Audience members will follow a group of actors and a wider cast from the local community as they seek sanctuary.

One of the core cast, Christina Dembenezi, told BBC Wales arts and media correspondent Huw Thomas the aim was to get people talking about the issue.
