#PULSE17 – Tanja

Performed on Sun 4 Jun


This is what she would have said, if only we’d let her.

An impassioned call to arms, a play and a campaign: ‘TANJA,’ a new piece from SBC Theatre, is a dramatic, meta-theatrical exploration of immigration detention centres- starring Emily Ntshangase-Wood, a former Yarl’s Wood detainee.

Central to this play are the lived experiences of asylum seekers and refugees across the world. ‘TANJA’ (the pseudonym used in the British press when referring to asylum seekers speaking out against abuse within the system) takes audiences inside an immigration detention centre, whilst examining and challenging the UK’s position in the ‘Refugee Crisis.’
