Event description

Description

A fictional fantasy told with beautiful puppetry, physical theatre and poetry, inspired by the true stories of refugee torture survivors Stone Flowers, interwoven with their vivid, atmospheric score.

In a land far from here, the inhabitants of the great city of Home live a happy life, surrounded by fertile forests and bright rivers. But one day the sky darkens, and a cruel Storm shrouds the city. With a furious temper and a ravenous greed, the Storm destroys all they hold dear and takes all they have. Forced to leave Home, join us as we follow one family on their incredible journey across many bizarre and bewildering lands, risking their lives in search of safety.

Gone will take you on a journey of resilience, survival and hope.

Join award-winners Music Action International and Box Tale Soup for a truly unique experience that will make you question what you thought you knew about refugees, and show the true resilience of the human spirit.

PLEASE NOTE: SOME OF THE THEMES EXPLORED IN THIS PIECE MEAN THAT IT IS NOT SUITABLE FOR UNDER-12S.
