“Far From Home brings to the stage the humanity of told and untold stories by voices not always heard.”
Far From Home is a hard hitting, atmospheric, abstract narrative dance production that explores the topic of immigration, and the consequences of the search for a better life for those forced to seek it due to social or political devastations.
Performed by 6 professional dance artists, the performance ensemble highlights the emotional and mental stresses of migrant families, as well as the impact on communities where migrants settle, unpicking the meaning of tolerance and practice of integration.
“a real gem” Lyndsey Winship, The Guardian
