Where do you come from? Where are you heading? Where is home?
Soweto, late 80s. A young man struggles against the security forces, confronts tribal tensions and deals with the death of his own mother. He falls in love with a girl from the wrong neighbourhood and together they decide to run away from home and everything they have ever known... A new twist on a 1000 year old fable, presenting great music and dance from South Africa, mixed with urban culture from London and Los Angeles.
Where Is Home? is a dance theatre show that explores and investigates themes of global human migration and displacement.
Across the globe, from the dawn of civilization, migration has been a definitive and enduring feature of humanity. All humans in every social formation and society have recent or distant ancestors who trekked, wandered, or journeyed to new locations as a result of cataclysmic crisis or external demands that compelled relocation for survival and success.
Where Is Home? is a family show with a universal story.
From start to finish the piece astounds with its frankly terrifying energy and intensity
...Marshall’s excitingly layered, infectious music remains a sensory pleasure.
