Tell us a Journey

We’re gathering stories to put on the map at Theatre Delicatessen 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: 

  •  You can email us.
  •  Or if you’re in Sheffield, drop in to Theatre Delicatessen on The Moor during the festival (Tuesday 20th June onwards) and fill in a journey sheet and leave it in the box in the cafe. 
  •  On 21st & 22nd June you can find us drawing the map in the Theatre Deli warehouse - drop in and see us between 2 - 5pm.
  • Or come in during the performance, 12-7.30pm, Saturday 24th.

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 first ever performance of The Journeys, in collaboration with Third Angel.

Drop in and see us at Sheffield’s brilliant Theatre Delicatessen, 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.
