Tell us a Journey

We are very pleased to be re-staging The Journeys, our collaboration with Third Angel, for the Caravan International Showcase 2018 in Brighton. Once again, we are gathering stories to put on the map during the performance, and we’d love to hear yours.

Do you have a migration to tell us about? It could be yours, your family’s, your friend’s. It could be recent, it could be historical. It could be short - just the starting point and the destination - it could be a long, detailed story. We’re particularly interested in the route of the journey, when it happened, and who it was who travelled - but of course we would love to hear anything else you want to tell us. We’ll try to trace the route onto our world map during the performance.

If you have a journey to share with us:

A line of turmeric marks the migration route of Syrians to Turkey in 2016. A line of coffee beans marks the route from Oceania to Madagascar in 1000AD. The flows of migrations through history unfold through the live construction of a map. This performance invites you to engage with the process of mapping migrations, and to consider the history and the reasons for movement- whether pushed or pulled…

We are delighted to present The Journeys, in collaboration with Third Angel. Previously performed in Theatre Deli, Sheffield as part of Migration Matters Festival 2017.

Drop in and see us, stay for as long or short a time as you wish, watch the map grow, and, if you wish, tell us a story of migration of your own, or one you have heard.
