Touring Autumn 2018

When every citizen is ordered to return to their place of birth, ‘Where We Began’ examines where we could end up.

The UK’s first Theatre Company of Sanctuary, Stand and Be Counted present a wild and vivid vision of the future, combining storytelling, movement and live music. Five performers from across the globe challenge existing notions of ‘home’ in this multilingual celebration of personal identity.

Commissioned by Camden People's Theatre, Theatre in the Mill and CAST and supported by Arts Council England.
Where We Began is a winner of Bridging The Gap and will tour nationally this Autumn.  See dates and venues below to book tickets.
