Chickenshed presents an artistic response to the urgent and pressing questions of global migration, and investigates the concepts of national and personal identity.
‘Migration is an expression of the human aspiration for dignity, safety and a better future. It is part of the social fabric, part of our very make-up as a human family.’
Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations (Jan 2007-Dec 2016)
We find ourselves in a world where the building of walls - both in reality and figuratively - places ever more barriers between people who have more in common than it might at first appear. This powerful new musical and dance production will offer new perspectives on the forces driving both individual and mass migration, as well as telling the story of families directly affected. Thrillingly told with the urgency of youthful voices, this promises to be an unforgettable piece, very much in the style of What’s On Stage 2019 Offie award-winning Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.
