Refuge

They set out on a journey. Out of fear. With no guarantees. The paths of three runaways intersect. Bound to one another, they navigate a terrain of anxiety, courage, failure and compassion, seeking refuge in an indifferent world. At the point of no return, all that remains is awakening. The performance was inspired by interviews with a community of young people living in London who while on the run found themselves in limit situations. A stage composition balancing on the border between physical theatre and concert features seven exceptional musical and dance performers.
